Who We Are

The Engaged Teaching Hub is a unit in the Teaching + Learning Commons that promotes faculty and student success through programs and resources that support faculty and graduate students in their teaching roles. 

The Engaged Teaching team, made up of education specialists and graduate student teaching consultants from diverse disciplines, supports educators through interactive workshops, observations, and teaching consultations. We collaborate with departments, faculty, and instructors to design learner-centered, evidence-based, learning experiences. 

  • Collaboration is central to our work with educators in advancing teaching excellence. Through interdisciplinary, as well as discipline-specific workshops, faculty and graduate student instructors have an opportunity to learn with and from each other about teaching practices that support student learning. Through individual consultations, we mutually identify teaching strengths and strategies to improve instruction and learning.
  • Evidence-based practices, informed by the education literature, are integrated into our programming. We also support faculty in the design of learning assessments and formal scholarly research studies on teaching and learning.
  • Our Learner-centered approach focuses on the whole student.  We take an asset-based approach to support students to mature as learners throughout their time on our campus and beyond. This involves harnessing the strengths, interests, and motivations of our students. It is realized through the integrated work of the six hubs in the Commons that support educators in meeting the needs of our students and fueling their desire to learn.
