Center for Teaching and Learning

Evidence-Based Teaching Program

The Evidence-Based Teaching Program (EBT) offers support from pedagogy and technology experts and collaboration with peers across disciplines. Faculty participate in online discussions and four meetings a quarter, observe peers in their classrooms and learn what research says about effective teaching. They also experiment with new approaches and explore ways to conduct classroom-based research.

Support for moving to remote instruction

The EBT Program will meet remotely during Spring 2020 via Canvas and Zoom. Discussions will emphasize support for remote instruction.

  • Explore current research on best teaching practices
  • Develop effective approaches for teaching anywhere
  • Receive support while implementing new approaches and using new tools

Open to all UW faculty members. 

What are the benefits of joining EBT?

  • Improved teaching and student outcomes
  • A community of peers invested in improving their teaching and supporting one another
  • Mentorship from instructors across campus who use best practices in their teaching
  • Opportunities to advance as a leader in teaching and learning at the UW

What is expected of participants?

You can join an EBT that meets via Zoom or an asynchronous Canvas-based group.

  • Asynchronous group members participate in online Canvas discussions.
