Building KU's Teaching and Learning Community

New Faculty Resources

Welcome to teaching at KU

A CTE discussion with Chris Brown


CTE has several resources and programs for new faculty. If you’re just starting at KU, these may be particularly useful:

KU policies and procedures are linked here. This link includes information about the academic calendar, concealed carry, student policies, teaching innovations, and other teaching resources on the Lawrence campus.

You can also see our portfolio page showcasing over 100 different teaching portfolios. These examples, primarily from KU, illustrate how various faculty members have addressed teaching questions and developed projects to improve student learning.

After you’ve taught at KU for a year or two, consider applying for CTE’s Best Practices Institute. BPI is a collegial, hands-on seminar especially useful for teachers who would like to reflect on and learn to represent their teaching.
