What is the Center for Teaching Excellence?

The Center is a community where:

  • We support long-term and short-term communities for faculty growth and inquiry (e.g., FLCs, FLINGs, workshops/seminars);

  • We support innovative teaching through projects, grants and awards (e.g., Top 25 project, grants, Knox award);

  • We bring to Miami the best of the scholarship of teaching and learning (e.g., Lilly Conference on College Teaching, Journal on Excellence in College Teaching);

  • We support departments and programs in their work to assess their effectiveness as educators in their discipline;

  • We work with other programs to enhance and celebrate teaching and learning at Miami.

Our mission is to embody and promote engagement with scholarly and reflective teaching practices to support the intellectual development of faculty and students as members of a diverse community.

What are people saying?

"The Graduate Student Teaching Enhancement Program (GSTEP) has been a wonderful opportunity to improve my teaching and mentoring effectiveness, and better prepare myself for a career in academia. Seminars focused on a variety of useful teaching and professional development topics, including acquiring an academic job, teaching portfolios, and methods for classroom assessment. ... Also, the completion of a statement of teaching philosophy and outline of a teaching portfolio will greatly facilitate the process of applying for tenure track faculty positions in the future. Finally, I believe it is my responsibility as an educator to continually develop as an effective teacher, and GSTEP has provided that opportunity."
