Building KU's Teaching and Learning Community

Teaching Resources

Teaching Resources provides information designed to help you develop, improve, and advance your teaching practices.

Design and Teach a Course helps set you on a productive teaching path with practical information like preparing a syllabus and making good use of in-class time. Also in this section is a collection of videos in which KU faculty members discuss best teaching practices. Each video is accompanied by additional resources and links to helpful information on the CTE and KU web sites.

Developing Teaching provides both theoretical and practical information on a wide variety of more advanced teaching topics, such as course redesign, hybrid/online teaching, cognitive apprenticeship, and the challenges and rewards of teaching graduate students.

Documenting Teaching will help you learn how to represent your teaching practices to colleagues and your department, using tools like peer observations, teaching portfolios, and student surveys.

CTE Publications will take you to a list of resources published by the KU Center for Teaching Excellence. This includes the Teaching Matters newsletter, an essential guide to teaching at KU, the GTA resource book, and a rubric for teaching evaluation.

For additional help developing your teaching, please see KU Resources and CTE's Teaching Portfolio gallery.

Join us at the Teaching Summit

KU's annual Teaching Summit will be held on Aug. 18 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This year's theme is What Next? Envisioning Teaching and Learning for the Next 25 Years. The Center for Teaching Excellence will celebrate its 25th birthday this fall, and the Summit theme reflects that special milestone.

Dr. Michael Dennin of the University of California, Irvine, will present the keynote, which will focus on how higher education can open new paths to success for students by building on strengths and breaking down barriers.
