Course Design


The Syllabus: On this webpage, you will find a syllabus checklist, new course syllabus template, the UT campus syllabus template, and various tactics on how to organize and design a syllabus. We would like to thank the Office of Information Technology for assisting us in making sure these resources meet accessibility standards.

Creating a Memorable Teaching Philosophy StatementThis document will provide you with a process for developing and writing a memorable teaching philosophy statement. This statement serves as a concrete illustration of the thinking, intention, and teacher identity of the instructor. It represents whatstudents and colleagues can expect to encounter when the actual individual shows up to campus and the classroom.

Inclusive Teaching Toolbox: This Inclusive Teaching Toolbox is a resource created to empower you to teach to the needs of your students, while helping learners understand the value of inclusion for their future careers. We have designed this toolbox not as a list of “tips and tricks of the trade,” but rather as a mechanism to help you think about ways that you can leverage the diversity of your students to improve the learning in your classroom.

Flipping the Classroom: An overview of flipped classrooms and additional resources to assist you in this teaching and learning strategy.

Service-Learning Course Design Guide: This guide can serve as a planning tool to guide faculty through the process of designing a service-learning course in alignment with the standards of UT’s new S course designation. Additionally, this guide can serve as a reference tool that includes helpful resources to support service-learning instructors.

Service-Learning Course Design Web Resources : Service-learning course design can be overwhelming, but we have a number of resources that will help both inform and simplify the process on this webpage.

Online Program & Course Development: UT faculty and instructors are at the center of online innovation and program development. If you are interested in teaching a new online course, developing a new online program, or redesigning a traditional course for online or hybrid delivery, the information on our Vols Online webpage will assist as you move forward.
