EVENTS FOR ALL FACULTY
COURSE DESIGN INSTITUTE
Faculty and teaching assistants are invited to this five-day, hands-on instructional event to help you refresh an existing course or design a new course from the ground up.
CITL hosts a calendar of events designed for the success and engagement of full-time faculty and instructors. Some are informal, such as the Teaching Circles and Faculty Book Club, and some are structured, such as the Course Design Institute. However, all are aimed at supporting your success as a faculty member at USF.
CITL presents a number of events and experiences to support the vital work and success of adjunct instructors on USF’s campuses. From orientation events to specific teaching circles and learning communities, adjuncts at USF have specific events available to support them.
The contribution of graduate teaching assistants is essential to the academic life of USF and critical to the future of university instruction and research.
