Welcome to DTEI

We cultivate equitable learning environments across campus through pedagogical development opportunities focused on integrating innovative, evidence-based, and inclusive teaching practices.


DTEI workshops provide opportunities for faculty, adjunct faculty, graduate students and postdocs to discuss best practices in teaching and learning and the DTEI can also create a tailor-made workshop for a department, school, or instructional groups.
