Faculty Development Programs

The Institute for Teaching & Learning offers a full range of faculty development programs to all UConn faculty, at all of the UConn campuses. The formats range from individual consultation services to departmental workshops, from book groups, and learning communities to campus wide teaching institutes. Topics span the continuum from purely pedagogical to purely technical and everything in between.  All services are free and confidential.

New Opportunities
  • ITL Hybrid Workshops

    ITL presents our new hybrid workshops! These brief workshops offer faculty information on various teaching topics in an interactive blog format that allows quick access to information as well as the opportunity to share tips and resources. We will continue to add topics as they are developed, but to get you started, we have five workshops currently available: First Day of Class, Preparation for the First Class, Managing the Wireless Environment, Enabling Learning for Non-Native English Speaking (NNES) Students and Preventing Cheating During Exams.

  • Teaching To Go!

    Choose any of our workshop topics and have them delivered to your faculty or your teaching assistants in your departmental meetings.

  • New Faculty Learning Community [TBA]
    The purpose of this group is to provide an opportunity for new faculty to share in discussions around the issues of high school students becoming university scholars – understanding and helping them. First year students face many problems: academic, social, financial, geographic, etc. We will spend time together and with UConn colleagues in a friendly atmosphere on a bi-weekly basis. Time to be arranged.
