We at the Center for Teaching, part of the ITS Office of Teaching, Learning & Technology, designed this handbook to make your teaching life a little easier.

It is not intended to serve as an encyclopedic collection of all information on all topics related to university teaching and learning or to your life as an instructor. In this era of rapid information creation and exchange, you may find that consulting Internet resources, faculty members in your department, and University offices such as the ITS Office of Teaching, Learning & Technology (OTLT), including and especially the Center for Teaching, will provide more in-depth and current information about your teaching role. This handbook is an overview with guideposts for further exploration. It also is available in print format; request a copy by contacting the Center for Teaching.

We hope this handbook about your role as an instructor and the teaching life will inspire you to ponder both who you want to be as a teacher and how you can best help your students learn. We encourage you to read the handbook before you begin teaching and then turn to experienced faculty members, online resources, and the Center for Teaching for additional information, ideas, and support.

We are an important part of your professional network. Let us know if we can help make your teaching experience even more exciting and rewarding for you and your students.

Best wishes,The Center for Teaching staff
