We support teaching and learning in all modalities; in-person, online and hybrid.
We partner with you in planning, building, and facilitating meaningful learning experiences for your online, in-person, or hybrid course. We can help you choose and use technology; create community; design assignments; and develop assessment and grading strategies.
You can schedule a one-time consultation or a series of meetings so we can help you enhance your teaching practices. We equip instructors with everything they need to provide students with a high-quality learning experience, whether you are teaching an online, in-person, or hybrid course.
Mini-courses and workshops are offered year-round on a variety of topics. We can also create a custom workshop to meet your needs or schedule one of our offerings for your group. To request a workshop please fill out our request form.
We have created a number of resource guides on various topics related to teaching and learning. We invite you to explore these guides.
Equity & Inclusion in Teaching
Promoting equity through inclusive teaching benefits everyone.
We provide resources and workshops that introduce and model inclusive approaches that can be adapted for any discipline, class size, or delivery format. Inclusive teaching addresses content accessibility and asks us to consider which students are prioritized and/or marginalized through the instructional activities and materials in our courses. Research shows that student-centered evidence-based teaching results in better outcomes for Black, Indigenous, and students of color. Here are some essential techniques.
The UArizona Disability Resource Center
The DRC provides excellent tips to get you started on creating a more inclusive and accessible classroom and course materials.
Universal Design for Learning
UDL principles are based on evidence about how humans learn and contribute to success for all students.

Diversify Your Course
Represent diversity in the authors, images, and other materials in your course. Consider that more than 1 in 5 college students are parents, 19% of students have disabilities, and most students work; be sure to represent the New College Majority.

Provide Meaningful Feedback
When giving feedback, focus on a few significant points, be positive but not superficial. Use specific feedback to help students improve and to see teaching as coaching more than judging.
