This page provides the dates and times of upcoming CTE events.
These workshops promote strong teaching and learning, and help faculty and graduate students advance their academic careers.
Discussions of Readings
Selected texts offer helpful ideas on teaching, learning, faculty careers, and academic leadership, and promise to provoke fruitful discussion.
TA/Graduate Student Events
Book studies and workshops focus on the pedagogical and professional development needs of teaching assistants and graduate students aspiring to be faculty. These events are open solely to graduate students.
Faculty Learning Groups
Faculty learning groups provide an opportunity for small interdisciplinary groups to explore a topic, implement what they learn in their teaching, and often, gather student -learning evidence and present it in peer-reviewed contexts beyond Duquesne University.
Time for faculty to get away from work and home obligations to engage in an exchange of ideas, take time to reflect, and be inspired in our calling.
The Center for Teaching Excellence offers programs to welcome and orient all who are new to the teaching community at Duquesne, as well as colleagues who are making the transition to a new role (e.g., moving from adjunct or TA to full-time faculty).
Celebration of Teaching Excellence
At the annual spring Celebration of Teaching Excellence, Provost Austin confers the Creative Teaching Awards and Graduate Student Awards for Excellence in Teaching. We also recognize Certificate of University Teaching recipients, CTE workshop presenters, teaching award committee members, and academic learning outcomes assessment committee members.
