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.

DePaul University Teaching and Learning Conference
All DePaul faculty and staff members are invited to register and submit proposals for the annual Teaching and Learning Conference. The theme of this year's conference, Better Together: Creating Inclusive Learning Environments, challenges us to reflect on the range of our students' diversity and how we account for it in our teaching practices as we strive to create learning communities that are both welcoming and academically challenging.
Inclusive Teaching and Learning
Inclusive teaching and learning is defined as a range of intentional strategies that “engage students in learning that is meaningful, relevant and accessible to all”. These practices can range from using icebreakers on the first day of class to redesigning your course using an educational framework like Universal Design for Learning.
