SERVICES OFFERED


 We support instructors in their teaching via the following services:
  • Teaching certifications. Offering robust professional development pathways and recognition through the Teaching Excellence Program (TEP). Through the TEP, instructors enhance teaching practices through peer-led teaching certification programs with a special focus on high impact teaching practices such as supporting first year students, undergraduate research, collaborative learning, inclusive teaching, service learning, and writing pedagogy. 

  • Teaching fellowships. As the only American institution accredited by Advance HE, OTL awards prestigious HEA fellowships in recognition of teaching/supporting learning excellence. The HEA fellowship program provides instructors with service opportunities through mentoring and assessing peer applications.

  • Instructional design. We partner with instructors to design effective courses using evidence-based practices, accessible content, and engaging technologies. 

  • Technology support. We support instructors in their implementation of learning technologies through 1:1 consultations, communities of practice, and peer-led training opportunities. We offer extensive Canvas and Microsoft Teams support, which form UVU’s “virtual campus”. 

  • SOTL. We facilitate the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning program to advance teaching practices. Conduct research in your classroom and share your findings through public events.
