Activities & Programs
A confidential, peer-to-peer program, peer coaching provides a unique opportunity to enrich and enhance your teaching practice. A peer coach from outside your discipline visits and observes your class, paying special attention to three focal areas that you identify, and then shares his or her observations as you strategize effective solutions together.
Faculty Learning Communities
Our Faculty Learning Communities (or FLCs) bring together small, inter-disciplinary groups of faculty (6 to 10), who meet twice a month each semester for an academic year to address a pedagogy or academia-related problem of mutual interest.
Our Teaching Cafe series features faculty giving short presentations, and facilitating discussions. Recent topics include Ignatian Pedagogy, Teaching Global Immersion Courses, Re-Imagining Grading, and Creating an Inclusive Learning Environment.
Summer Book Club
Each summer, we invite all faculty to read a single book about teaching and join us for a dinner and interactive discussion of the book. The dinner and discussion take place each August.
Early in the fall semester, faculty members who have worked at USF for five or more years will spend a weekend away reimagining one of their courses with the support and facilitation of the CTE and colleagues from across the University.
New(ish) Faculty Teaching Workshops
CTE traditionally offers workshops and other programming to help welcome new faculty to our teaching community. This often takes the form of a half-day workshop that provides a pedagogical toolkit to assist in the shaping (or refreshing) of teaching theories and methods.
We’ve handpicked a modest library for USF Faculty. It's easy to borrow.
