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.
In order for attendees to personally track their current registrations and attendance
at CTE workshops and events, we will begin requiring that registrants create an account in
our registration system and login to register. Workshops and events that are approved
for our certificate of completion programs, currently require that registrants create
an account and login to register. Beginning in spring 2019, CTE will require account
creation and login to register for ALL workshops and events.
If you have an existing training account with the Division of Human Resources, Office
of Organizational and Professional Development, you can login using your HR training
username and password. By logging in to register for CTE events, your complete record
for both CTE and HR trainings will be available in a single location with a single
account and login.

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.
