Welcome, New Faculty

TEP is here to support you as a teacher and help foster an imaginative, resourceful, and connected teaching culture at the University.

You’ll have us as backup throughout your UO career: join us to discuss course design nuts and bolts, or to breathe new life into a course you’ve taught for years. Our staff consults on best practices for responding to student work, integrating technology into the classroom, establishing classroom dynamics, interpreting student evaluations, writing teaching statements, developing truly innovative assignments, and more.

And you can come to TEP to seek more satisfaction from your teaching, to forge a multidisciplinary teaching community with other scholars, and to contribute to timely conversations about higher education.

Please contact tep@uoregon.edu any time to set up a confidential consultation and check for TEPlist, our e-newsletter, which we publish about four times a term. You can subscribe yourself and see all of our upcoming events and standing resources at tep.uoregon.edu.

A packet of basic teaching resources for new UO faculty members is here.

Also, here are TEP’s collections of classroom interactive techniques and exercises to build students’ metacongitive abilities. And here is a list of ideas for compelling informal student writing prompts compiled by UO’s Center for Teaching Writing.

You can check out the rooms you’re teaching in, especially their classroom technology, here.

And we hope we see you at:

We invite faculty in the first three years of their UO careers to join us for a catered lunch and chance to form cross-campus connections around teaching goals and challenges. Let us offer support and substance as you begin fall term and update you about initiatives that will help shape the broader context for teaching at UO.
