New Faculty Symposium

This August the Provost's Teaching Fellows and the Center for Teaching and Learning will host the 42nd annual New Faculty Symposium, UT's campus-wide orientation for incoming faculty. The Symposium takes place every year on the Tuesday and Wednesday before classes start, typically the third week of August. Registration for the 2022 Symposium has begun and is open to all new instructors.

Texas Teach Up

Our campus-wide celebration of teaching is now Texas Teach-Up! Formerly known as Eyes on Teaching and Online Teaching Days, Texas Teach-Up has a new name to mark a new chapter as we continue to cultivate community around teaching among instructors of all levels. This year's Texas Teach-Up takes place on February 9-10, 2022.
