The EDC offers workshops and certificate programs where faculty and instructors can come together to build interdisciplinary communities focused on teaching. Individual departments, however, may well have their own specific teaching and learning culture with discipline-specific teaching techniques and assessments. To that end, a number of departments across campus have Teaching Mentors who help to facilitate informal discussions about the issues educators may face within their departmental contexts.
The Role of Teaching Mentors
Teaching Mentors will take a leadership role to build on the informal mentorship that already occurs within academic departments. This leadership role will typically involve a number of elements, including:
- Acting as the initial point of contact for new faculty members and contract instructors seeking advice on developing and teaching courses and acting as a resource for all instructors interested in further developing their teaching.
- Planning/hosting at least one teaching seminar or roundtable in the department during each academic year.
- Coordinating/curating the collection of shared teaching resources, such as sample course outlines and assessment tools (sample assignments, evaluation guides, marking rubrics).
- Serving as a point of contact between the EDC and the department for the promotion of teaching and learning events.
