In addition to providing consultations and workshops, TEP seeks to build community around teaching at UO, acknowledge the remarkable work of UO teachers, and leverage faculty and GE teaching insights to enhance UO’s academic mission.
Past TEP programs and initiatives have included:
- The Working Group on Active Teaching and Learning, a partnership with the UO Libraries Center for Media and Education Technologies and Yamada Language Center, which formed three cohorts of faculty seeking support and camaraderie as they adopted more active teaching methods.
- Duck In, a peer observation program that allows faculty to open seats in their classes for colleagues to claim them.
- The Working Group on Classroom Dialogue, part of UO’s Freedom of Expression Series, a partnership with the Graduate School and the interactive theater troupe Rehearsals for Life, which considered the valuable, difficult work of facilitating rigorous and respectful class discussion in a turbulent political climate.
