Teaching Resources

The articles, books, and links below are resources about teaching and learning for educators at the University of Delaware. Many of them have been distributed to many new and contingent faculty on a USB drive.

In addition to these materials, there is an online syllabus template. Use this to make sure that your syllabus is ready on the first day.
