The Teaching Collaborative is a new weekly workshop and discussion series at Duke focused on pedagogy topics frequently requested by faculty. The sessions are intended to build a community of practitioners at Duke who learn together and learn from each other, to spread knowledge of teaching best practices.

Sessions are Thursdays, with varying times and locations. Lunch is provided for those at the lunch hour; snacks provided otherwise. Sign up for one or more, and come learn and share with us.
