Are you new to Duke?

Welcome!

Learning Innovation is here to help Duke faculty with teaching; we offer many programs and workshops throughout the year to help build teaching skills and to provide opportunities for faculty to connect with each other to share teaching knowledge and experiences. If you have questions about teaching, please contact us or come by our weekly drop-in office hours.

Some of what Learning Innovation offers:

  • Teaching consultants to help faculty plan and design in-person or online courses;
  • Information and advice about using Duke’s learning technology environment (Sakai LMS, WordPress, Zoom, Gradescope, VoiceThread, Warpwire and many more tools….we know learning about them all can be confusing, and we can help!)
  • Programs to connect with other faculty and build teaching skills and knowledge, such as Faculty Fellowships, Course Design Institute, or  Visit a Classroom;
  • Events, workshops and presentations on various teaching topics;
  • Mini-grants to jump start new teaching ideas in your courses;
  • Guidance creating or locating appropriate teaching materials for your course (Open Educational Resources, existing library materials, recorded video segments, and more)
  • Support for doing research on your teaching, or for developing and piloting new education tools or technologies; and
  • A monthly e-newsletter with lots of opportunities and resources for your teaching (sign up here and stay connected!)

We look forward to meeting you and having many productive discussions about teaching with you in the coming months and years!
