Students discussing classwork

Welcome to DePaul’s collaborative teaching and learning resource site.

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 contact us at
