Our workshops provide opportunities for faculty, adjunct faculty, graduate students and postdocs to discuss best practices in teaching and learning. Some workshops, indicated by the module category, partially meet the requirements for the Certificate in Teaching Excellence. You will need to write a reflection on the workshop to apply workshop attendance towards the Certificate requirements.

Please note that the Course Design Certificate Program is offered multiple times a year.

The DTEI will also create a tailor-made workshop for a particular department, school, or instructional group. Contact DTEI to request a workshop (dtei@uci.edu).
