The Office of Empowering Teaching Excellence brings instructors together from across the USU system to build a community of teaching excellence. To accomplish this ETE holds several workshops, seminars, learning circles, and other events throughout the year. Those who engage in these events gain new insights on cutting edge teaching technologies, the scholarship of teaching and learning, and community support for a culture of teaching excellence. Engaging in instructional development is a key component of the architecture of engagement at USU.
