Call for Participants for the Teaching Effectiveness Course (TEC) 1: Fundamentals of University Teaching

We would like to invite UPD faculty members to participate in the first in a series of teaching effectiveness courses this year entitled: Fundamentals of University Teaching (in a Remote Learning Context) which will run for 3 weeks, from August 2 to 19, 2021.

This is an introductory course on teaching and learning in higher education intended for new or early-career faculty members in the university, particularly those teaching at the undergraduate level.

The course involves a blended learning approach, combining asynchronous or offline exercises with synchronous workshops and opportunities for interaction with co-participants and facilitators. Learning is expected to be collaborative and experiential.
