Building KU's Teaching and Learning Community

An Essential Guide to Teaching at KU

An Essential Guide to Teaching

 

This guide focuses on ways that college teachers provide maximum benefits to learners. Therefore, it’s intended for an audience of university faculty members who will organize and offer courses. As Dea Greenhoot, the Director of CTE, says in the introduction, this guide offers an inclusive representation of teaching practices and policies at KU.

 

Listed below are portions of the Essential Teaching Guide (2nd ed., 2018) and also a complete version of the manual for you to view or print (all pdfs):
