Faculty Showcase on Teaching
Showcase Recordings Now Available!
April 22 & 23, 2021 | Online
The CFE Faculty Showcase on Teaching returned in April in a virtual format. This year’s Showcase was held across two days, giving registrants the chance to attend even more sessions as they had time. Missed the Showcase? All session recordings and shared materials are now available on the Showcase Program! Please note UNC Onyen authentication is required to view the recordings.
For the past decade, the Faculty Showcase on Teaching has provided instructors with an opportunity to learn from each other about promising teaching practices and to connect with colleagues across disciplines. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we used this year’s event to think about what we’ve learned the past year and how it might inform teaching and learning moving forward.
Daily email updates were sent to registrants during Showcase week. Here they are in case you missed them!
- How to prepare for the virtual conference (Monday 4/19)
- Recognizing your instructional colleagues (Tuesday 4/20)
- Showcase starts tomorrow! Access and program notes (Wednesday 4/21)
- Day 2 program highlights (Thursday 4/22)
Learn. Connect. Share. Have fun!
Registration is required. The Showcase is open to all UNC instructors, as well as faculty, staff, and students with instructional support roles.
You need only register once to access all the online sessions offered over the two days. Information about accessing the live sessions will be provided later.Register for the Showcase

Virtual Happy Hour
Join us for a fun and relaxing evening during the Virtual Happy Hour on Thursday, April 22nd! Attendees can choose to either work together with cross-campus colleagues to win the team scavenger hunt and receive a prize or rotate between different conversational topics, much like you would at an in-person conference! See details on the program.

Celebrating UNC Colleagues
Help us recognize UNC instructors who have made a difference. Teaching throughout the COVID-19 pandemic has tested us as educators and also obligated us to support each other in new or different ways. The last Showcase session on Friday will be a crowd-sourced curtain call to explicitly recognize UNC colleagues who have made a difference—no matter how large or small—in how you have approached your teaching role over the past year. Don’t miss your chance to recognize contributions of the UNC instructors who have offered support for you and your teaching!
Submissions have closed. Watch the Celebration recording and review the full list of recognized instructors on the program.
