Institute for Teaching and Learning

Supporting faculty…Improving teaching…Enhancing student learning

The Institute for Teaching and Learning supports faculty by focusing on improving teaching and enhancing student learning. We offer workshops, information sessions, and training related to professional development, general education, student learning assessment, course design and development, and implementation of technology to enhance teaching.

Workshops and Events

Keep Teaching Coffee Breaks

If you’re missing those daily “water-cooler conversations,” join a Keep Teaching Coffee Break group to connect with your colleagues weekly for informal discussions about the successes, challenges, possibilities, and frustrations of teaching remotely in this challenging time. Groups will meet weekly for a 30-minute online gathering for the rest of the semester. See ITL schedule for available times.

ITL Open Hours

ITL is here to help as you move to online teaching. We can give advice about teaching challenges and walk you through how to set up basic instructional technology, such as setting up discussion forums and submission folders, recording a lecture, and creating quizzes and tests. Join us Monday-Friday between 10:00-2:00 by clicking here.

ITL Phone or Email Consultations

If you can’t make the ITL Open Hours or are unsure about using WebEx, send us an email at itl@uakron.edu to ask a question or request a phone consultation.
