Teaching

Whether you are teaching a small seminar class or a class of 500 students, are teaching an on-ground, hybrid, or face-to-face course, we are here to help you address the challenges and reap the rewards of guiding student learning.

You are welcome to contact one of our faculty developers to discuss your teaching ideas, concerns, or questions. We are happy to work with you via email, phone, or Skype, or meet with you in your office or at  the OIA.
