Department Training

TEP can tailor our workshops to address specific questions and issues that are pressing to a department’s faculty and graduate student instructors. Department colleagues occasionally attend TEP workshops together and then report back to their group. Contact to discuss how we can best meet your needs.

Our core skills workshops are:

  • Aligned Course Design
  • Teaching Toward Inclusion and Belonging
  • Student Metacognition and Motivation
  • Research-led Techniques to ‘Activate’ a Class
  • and What Should be Different about Teaching at a Research University?

We also offer workshops on Assessment, Grading and Feedback Strategies; Difficult Dialogues; Large-Class Teaching; Facilitating Discussion; and Getting to Know Students.  

Facilitated Discussion

TEP staff occasionally facilitate unit-level discussion around shared learning goals, sharpening a discipline-specific sense of teaching quality, addressing trends in student participation, and other issues. Email to explore whether a facilitated discussion could be valuable for you and your colleagues.   

Support for Your Program Ideas

TEP can offer logistical support, central publicity and coordination, and expert guidance to bring forward a number of teaching-related programming ideas that are emerging directly from members of the UO community. Let’s work together to bring your ideas to life.
