Teaching and Learning
Planning to develop or revamp a course? Always wanted to try out new teaching technologies? The Teaching and Learning Group is ready to help all Carolina departments and faculty members reach their teaching goals through consultations, workshops, Course Design Institutes, and grant programs. We also offer graduate students three programs to help them prepare for their academic careers.
What We Offer: Programs, Workshops, Institutes, and Grants
CFE offers workshops that enable faculty members to learn and practice methods of instruction that research shows to be effective. The Flexible Learning Spaces Initiative connects faculty with resources for teaching in classrooms with mobile furniture and shared writing spaces.
Through individual consultations, CFE staff engages directly with faculty members about the challenges they encounter in individual courses or in their overall development as teachers.
The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is a two-step approach. First faculty use scholarly inquiry on student learning to advance the practice of teaching and then make the findings public.
A key task in teaching is aligning course goals, and learning objectives, assignments, or activities to assessment goals.
