Early Career Teaching Academy Applications due Dec. 15, 2016

Most new faculty at large public universities enter the professoriate with training and support to conduct research, but few also enter with equivalent preparation and support for their teaching. The Early Career Teaching Academy provides a setting within which faculty members can create and develop a powerful teaching career, one that is rooted in evidence-based active learning strategies and high-impact educational practices, and designed to facilitate student success.

The academy convenes in two intensive sessions:  one full-day, and one half-day session. These sessions focus on the effective development and assessment of active learning teaching strategies suited to IUPUI’s diverse student body. By the second session, faculty are able to articulate the teaching strategies they plan to implement.

The next academy will be held on Friday, February 3, 2017, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Friday, February 10, 2017, 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.  Click here for more information and to apply.  

2017 Curriculum Enhancement Grant Request for Proposals

The Curriculum Enhancement Grant (CEG) provides faculty with technical and instructional support, time, and funds to implement projects designed to improve student learning and successes at IUPUI and IUPU Columbus.  In addition, the grants seek to enhance the conversation about scholarly teaching on campus and increase the practice of the scholarship of teaching and learning.  The request for proposals is now available at http://ctl.iupui.edu/Programs/CEG.   The deadline for submitting 2017 CEG proposals is January 27, 2017 at 11:59 p.m., EST.

Partner Opportunities

Indiana University Introduces Two-Step Login (Duo)

Email and online scams (phishing attacks) are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Two-step login (Duo), also known as two-factor authentication, adds a second layer of security when you log into secure systems. It combines an additional verification with your username and passphrase, and helps prevent anyone but you from logging in. 


Duo works like the two-step logins offered by Google, Facebook, and Amazon: (1) Enter your username and passphrase.  (2) Use your mobile device or phone to get a passcode.

At Indiana University, Two-step login (Duo) adds this second layer of security for some university systems, and also for your personal information and financial data (Bursar direct deposit, for example).  The Duo Mobile app for smartphones or tablets is recommended, but if you don't have such a device, regular cell phones and landlines are also supported. For step-by-step instructions for the various ways to begin, see Getting started with Two-step login (Duo) at IU.

During the months leading up to the end-of year enrollment deadline for Two-Step Login, the UITS Support Center is providing in-person support at various campus events. Get help with setup, adding a second device to your profile, and any other questions you have about two-step login. Visit the UITS Support Center Table at the following location: 

Thur., Dec 8, 2016 10:00 a.m -3:00 p.m. Business SPEA Bldg., IUPUI
