Started Feb 19, 2021


Full course description

Course Introduction

Teaching for Student Success: An Evidence-Based Approach, 2e is redesigned and updated with new material. It provides a framework for teaching and learning grounded in empirical research. Whether you’re a new instructor or have been teaching for years, teach face-to-face, hybrid, or online, these modules will help you articulate your own teaching philosophy and better serve your students, regardless of discipline.

As you work through these modules, you’ll be guided in effectively documenting your own excellence in teaching within the context of evidence-based principles. You can also complete artifacts supporting your professional goals that can be included as part of a teaching portfolio, an application for tenure, or a performance review. This course is comprised of three different pathways (Foundational; Active Learning; Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Justice). You can interact with the course in a variety of ways – complete one or more pathways and earn a certificate, focus on a single module, or simply look for resources for a particular topic.

This module series contributes to a vision of a university culture of teaching and learning that is grounded in a body of research that explains what really works.

Meet the Designers

To support faculty teaching, senior IU leadership identified a need for a comprehensive resource about evidence-based teaching that would integrate opportunities for faculty to document their evidence-based teaching practices. To create this resource, this group assembled teaching and learning experts from across the university, led by Robin K. Morgan (Director of the Institute for Learning and Teaching Excellence, IU Southeast) as part of a FACET Bender Fellowship.

This collaborative effort brought together the expertise of educators, leaders, designers, and resource and technology specialists. Together, we have over 200 years of experience educating or supporting educators.
