Teaching & Learning Certificate Program

The Teaching & Learning Certificate Program is a workshop-based program for all full-time and part-time DePaul faculty who are interested in enriching their teaching practices in collaboration with colleagues from across the university.

To attain a Teaching and Learning Certificate, instructors complete a minimum of six workshops within two years. The workshop series begins with an introduction to the Digication e-Portfolio platform, which is used throughout the program, and culminates in a reflective teaching portfolio workshop. Participants select at least four additional Teaching Commons workshops led by faculty and professional staff. For example, survey and focus group participants expressed particular interest in the following topics:

  • Engaging students in discussions
  • Providing efficient and effective feedback
  • Getting students to read course materials
  • Improving the quality of student writing
  • Designing and presenting effective lectures

  • Develop their teaching skills
  • Deepen their understanding of their own approaches to teaching
  • Learn new research-based pedagogies in higher education
  • Network with their peers
  • Collaborate across disciplines
