University of Portland leadership communicates with the teaching and learning community in a variety of ways.

Academic Update

An important communication tool used by the Office of the Provost is the monthly Academic Update. This is a targeted email message that you will received in your UP email. In the July 21, 2016, update Dr. Greene sent out information about developing syllabi. This included a section on "Required Syllabus Statements" and "Valuing Diversity." Keep an eye out for these important updates. If you feel you should be receiving these updates please contact the Office of the Provost.

TL Community Blog

One new project is the creation of the TL Community Blog. This blog is a product of the Teaching and Learning Collaborative and managed by Academic Technology Services. This blog is going through a change for the start of the 2016/17 academic year. The blog will now showcase faculty submissions. The change is to encourage faculty to blog about their experiences in the classroom. To use this as a platform to spark ideas and to share successes and challenges. The blog looks to fuel conversations and collaboration in our academic community.

All faculty will be welcome as writers and we look forward to the content contributed by our users. To learn how you can contribute to this blog contact Ben Kahn:
