The Center for Teaching Excellence has shifted prioritites in recent months and reimagined much of our work. While our upcoming events and programs may look different, we are committed to providing you with the same thoughtful, engaging, supportive, and research-based experiences you’ve come to expect from the CTE. The rich array of options we have imagined are meant to be helpful regardless of instructional modality, and flexible in terms of the timing and time commitment. They range from resources you can explore on your own to facilitated experiences. The CTE is here and ready to help.
- Learning Tech - This site is your connection to learning technologies available across UVA. The core component of Learning Tech is its innovative, searchable catalog of tools, which provides vital information about their pedagogical purposes, functions, availability, and support options.
- Teaching Continuity - The CTE is regularly developing and curating resources for the Teaching Continuity website. You can find quick access to UVA-specific information on pedagogical strategies, instructional practices, and learning technologies.
- c3Design - Based closely on our Course Design Institute, c3Design is our new interactive online program designed to guide you through the iterative, dynamic, and scholarly process of learning-focused course design. Design your next face-to-face, hybrid, or online course in a small facilitated cohort or on your own.
- Creating Well-Paced, Socially Connected Courses - This is a self-guided workshop designed to be a compact remote learning experience that addresses common barriers to online teaching. It aims to provide you with ideas for your own courses and empathize with the remote student perspective.
- More online teaching resources - Created by Online Learning Programs Director Kristin Palmer, this toolkit contains a variety of guides for creating digital course content and teaching online.
- E-book recommendations - UVA Library has electronic access to general books on online instruction as well as those that will help you design engaging learning activities and assignments. We've highlighted a few of our recommendations.
- Consultations - One-on-one consultations with an experienced CTE faculty member can help answer nagging pedagogical questions, spark new ideas, or give you confidence to try something new. There are a number of school-based units that also provide consultation services.
