The Center for Teaching Excellence inspires excellence and innovation in teaching. We
create and provide programming, resources, and opportunities that foster innovative
and effective pedagogical practices among all who teach at USC.
Are you a faculty member (tenure-track, non-tenure-track or part-time adjunct) who
is new to distributed learning but interested in teaching an online course? Would
you like to become familiar with best practices for teaching in an asynchronous online
environment? Getting Started Teaching Online at UofSC will introduce you to online teaching and prepare you to develop and offer online
courses at the University of South Carolina
CTE Syllabus and Course Schedule Templates make your work easier! Syllabus Templates are ADA accessible and include sample statements
that meet the Syllabus Best Practices [pdf] recommendations. Course Schedule Templates are tables with date, topic, assignment and due today headings and
include key dates in the semester academic calendar.
Teaching is not a “one-size-fits-all” activity, and thus the peer observation and
feedback process must accommodate such variability as to be most useful to departments
and colleges. The Center for Teaching Excellence is offering tools and templates for
use by departments or schools who wish to use a pre-existing
Peer Observation Tool. Use of these materials is not required by the university but are recommended as
examples of best practices in teaching.
