We are excited to announce the newest addition to the website! Featured Faculty is a section of our site that celebrates UNT faculty. Here we will feature UNT instructors who are dedicated to their teaching practice and passionate about sharing their knowledge and experience with others. Currently, you will find the first in our Teaching Excellence Spotlight, a cyclical feature that features UNT instructors who have been nominated by their peers and/or students.

The Teaching Commons Team is working hard on adding more content from the backlogs of CLEAR’s many past workshops, trainings, and events. The existence of this backlog is what partially inspired the beginning of Teaching Commons – we have all this relevant content on teaching and learning, but no single location for sharing it with UNT instructors. Thus, we have added two new Teaching Essentials, the section of our website that houses curated and new content on time-tested and new developments in teaching and learning scholarship.
