Foundations of USU Teaching
Foundations of USU Teaching is a cohort-based program for new instructor development. Those invited to participate in Foundations events include first-time faculty at USU who have a teaching responsibility. This includes tenure track, non-tenure track, lecturers, clinical faculty, and professional practice faculty. The inaugural event each year is the Foundations of USU Teaching workshop, hosted in August. Foundations Forum events will focus on specific subjects and will occur throughout the year.
