The Center for Teaching Excellence supports a university culture that values and rewards excellent undergraduate and graduate teaching.
At the Center for Teaching Excellence, we believe that every faculty member, instructor and teaching assistant has the power to be an excellent teacher. But staying committed to excellent teaching is not easy. That’s why we offer a variety of engaging programs and convenient resources, for novices and veterans, to be a helpful part of the teaching life of the University of South Carolina.
Activities of the CTE are guided by the following programmatic goals:
- Enhance the pedagogical knowledge and effectiveness of all who teach at USC in the classroom, online, and beyond.
- Foster partnerships and leverage support for programs that improve conditions necessary for student learning.
- Support the design and development of distributed learning courses and course modules.
- Increase faculty knowledge, skills and dispositions related to developing and assessing integrative learning abilities.
