Don’t Miss the DATs Orientation

Jan 17, 2024

By: Leslie Cramblet Alvarez, Assistant Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs and Director of the Office of Teaching and Learning 

As we embark on our 3rd year of R1 Our Way programming, the third cohort of Teaching Excellence Department Action Teams, DATs@DU, is kicking off this month. Under the guidance of DAT facilitators, Dr. Rashida Banerjee (Morgridge) and Dr. Virginia Pitts (OTL), two academic departments will determine ways to apply the Teaching Quality Framework and ensure that three voices (self, student, peer) are reflected in teaching evaluation for annual and consequential review.
