Resources for Faculty

Center for Teaching and Learning

The mission of the Center for Teaching and Learning is to enrich, promote, and support teaching and learning effectiveness in the areas of pedagogy, curriculum, and assessment. In pursuing this mission, we... Work with senate and non-senate faculty, departments, and co-curricular units to advance best practices in all aspects of curriculum, instruction, and assessment. Share knowledge of evidence-based, student-centered, and outcomes-guided pedagogy. Help improve the quality of education; provide expertise and build collective knowledge in teaching and learning; and leverage resources and opportunities for faculty enrichment. Promote iterative experimentation and transformation across curriculum to enhance student learning and engagement. Support a diversity of teaching styles that recognize the diversity of learning styles, respond to the differences in learning styles, and create an inclusive learning environment. Bring together and build dialogues and mutually beneficial partnership and cross-functional teams. Recognize and value teaching excellence; make high quality pedagogy visible; and reward faculty for their contributions to teaching and learning. The Center for Teaching and Learning works closely with the board of special faculty advisors, affiliated partners, and academic partners.

The ChemWiki is a collaborative approach toward chemistry education where an Open Access textbook environment is constantly being written and re-written by students and faculty members resulting in a free Chemistry textbook to supplant conventional paper-based books. http://chemwiki.ucdavis.edu/


The Library provides information and services about e-resources and alternatives to purchased textbooks. Find information on using open resources or creating online syllabi linked to online reading materials that combine open resources with electronic content licensed by the Library. http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/services/for_users/faculty_instructors.html#reserves


OpenChem is first and foremost to extend the benefit that we have seen since 2009 from open and free publication of individual chemistry courses to an entire curriculum. What UCI hopes to do with this initiative is to present a coherent, full curriculum by a top faculty. Today, a learner can sit with us in our lecture halls and follow four years' worth of chemistry core classes and electives. http://ocw.uci.edu/collections/open_chemistry.html
