Higher Education Faculty and Curricular Development
On this page: Our Philosophy | What We Offer
A quality university education expands students' capacity to think critically and independently, preparing them for success in the workplace and the marketplace. Drawing on years of experience and success at The University of Texas at Austin, the UT Global Initiative works with higher education faculty to create an environment in which students flourish.
UTGI trainings empower higher education faculty to excel in modern classroom pedagogies. Our workshops are based on the idea that, rather than relying on lecture and memorization, well-developed faculty members incorporate thoughtful pedagogy together with state-of-the-art content to provide a quality learning experience.
Designed to enhance understanding of pedagogical best practices, our faculty development workshops incorporate the following themes and more:
- Course design and learning outcomes
- Group and active learning structures
- Student-centered lesson plans for higher-level thinking
- Teaching and assessing academic learning skills
- Online and self-regulated learning
