21st Annual Teaching & Learning ConferenceFriday, May 20th, 2016
On this site you will find a range of practical and pedagogical resources, from learning how to access your course roster to discovering professional development programs available to faculty and staff at DePaul. The Teaching Commons is a collaboration between academic partners across the university, and we are happy to facilitate the exchange of teaching strategies and materials. If you have something you'd like to share, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While the Teaching Commons is a collection of resources that belongs to the whole learning community at DePaul, most of our work is created and shaped by our partnering academic support offices.
Discover Our Partners
The Teaching Commons is collecting stories told by DePaul faculty, staff and graduate students who were among the first in their family to attend college. Email email@example.com for details on how to share your own story.
Low-stakes assignments are forms of evaluation that do not heavily impact students' final grades and offer students formative feedback on their performance in the course. Give students feedback early in the quarter so your students have time to correct course.
Classroom Assessment Techniques (commonly called CATs) are brief classroom activities designed to help shape and focus subsequent teaching based on students’ current understanding and ongoing learning needs.
Thinking about one's thinking has been shown to facilitate lasting learning. Discover some practical applications of incorporating metacognition in your courses.
A rubric is simply a scoring tool that identifies the various criteria relevant to an assignment or learning outcome, and then explicitly states the possible levels of achievement along a continuum.
