Workshops and Courses for Educators

Workshops and courses take place in the Engaged Teaching Hub’s teaching lab in the Literature Building. Designed as a flexible learning space, the teaching lab allows us to introduce and model various teaching methods and allows educators to experiment with new instructional tools and approaches that engage and support learners. Teaching for Social Justice is at the heart of workshops and courses.

Workshops and courses are open to UC San Diego faculty and graduate student instructors, except where noted in the descriptions. Visit the events calendar. Join our newsletter by adding your email to our ETH Listserv.  Please email questions to Engaged Teaching Hub at
