teacher-center-berkeleyUniversity teaching centers are a great resource for both beginning and experienced college teachers. A quick Google search for “university teaching centers” will give you dozens of centers to chose from. You may want to start first by checking to see if the college or university where you teach has a teaching center to identify resources and workshops specific for your campus. But much of what is included on university teacher center websites are resources that can be used in any teaching setting — how to promote class discussion, how to design learning objectives, how to created multiple-choice exams, etc.

The Chronicle of Higher Education is a helpful resource for anyone teaching in higher education.
* Go to the homepage to see links to stories in higher education that range from political issues to teaching hacks.
