In line with UW-Madison’s teaching and learning mission and national trends, we offer several evolving programs designed to foster the use of research-supported, technology-enhanced teaching approaches. Each program has a different format and criteria for entry to meet the needs of faculty and instructional support staff regardless of experience level. This includes everything from drop-in workshops to year-long fellowships that all focus on evidence-based approaches to learning in higher education.
- Active Teaching Exchange: One-hour sessions that feature an instructor sharing their teaching experience and demonstrating how they used a teaching tool or technique, followed by discussion on how to make good teaching easier and more effective
- Active Teaching Lab: Low-commitment one-hour sessions that feature instructors sharing their experiences using tools to teach in addition to guided, hands-on experience with tools for participants
- Blend@UW: A program that supports the Educational Innovation Initiative by helping faculty and staff redesign courses to be more active and engaging by using blended-learning approaches
- Blended Learning Fellowship Program: A year-long program to develop campus leadership around the topic of blended learning
