All About Canvas

Teaching Effectiveness Program (TEP): The Teaching Effectiveness Program offers a variety of activities and services supporting the academic community in its focus on teaching and learning, such as obtaining feedback on teaching performance and improving undergraduate instruction. TEP services are free to all who teach— faculty members, graduate teaching fellows (GTFs), staff and university departments. All consultations and midterm feedback services are confidential. TEP's IT support staff are available to assist instructors in exploring different potential technologies that create useful and productive student learning experiences. Basic teacher training and teacher training for those teaching large classes is available each term. We can custom-design trainings to meet the needs of a department and we are open to suggestions on training topics from anyone with instructional responsibilities.


Center for Media and Education:  The UO Libraries Center for Media and Educational Technologies (CMET) provides classroom design and equipment distribution services to support the instructional technology needs of the university community. We also provide circulation and delivery of portable equipment to classrooms, and technology support to faculty and staff using our systems. See what technology is already included in your classroom here.

Getting Equipment for Your Class if the room does not already provide it (except laptops):  Equipment from the Media Services Department is only available for CRN-related work. It's best to request the equipment be delivered to your classroom and have the tech person help you set up. And arrange for them to return to pick up the equipment so you don't have to do it. You will need to get to your classroom about 10 minutes early, and after class stay with the equipment until the tech person picks it up.
