Teaching Foundations Short Course
Did you know the Office of Teaching and Learning offers a self-paced online course in Canvas for adjunct faculty, GTI’s, and part-time instructors titled, Teaching Foundations Short Course? The purpose of the course is to introduce new adjuncts and part-time instructors to DU and the resources available to them, as well as provide them with an overview of the latest best practices in higher education pedagogy and educational technology. The Teaching Foundations Short Course provides the same information available in the Teaching@DU Short Course (aka New Faculty Workshop) that all new faculty are enrolled in each August. The course is also open to experienced DU faculty members who haven’t participated in the New Faculty Workshop.
This year we introduced a Digital Badge option which we will award to instructors who successfully complete the course requirements. Please contact Kathy.Keairns@du.edu if you would like more information about the Teaching Foundations Short Course.
