SMARTEACHING 

SMARTeaching Workshops

PROGRAMS IN PEDAGOGY 

The Success Made for All: Revitalizing Teaching (SMART) series is designed to connect you to available campus resources, introduce you to the latest research on teaching, learning, and neurodevelopment, prepare you for challenges you may confront in the classroom, and introduce you to innovative ways that you can help prepare all of your students for success.

The SMARTeaching workshops are the perfect way to ensure that faculty at Rutgers-Newark and graduate students preparing for a career in academia are working SMARTer toward our collective student success goals!

The upcoming SMARTeaching workshops are a collaborative series between the P3 and Rutgers Teaching with Technology (TLT) division. See schedule below.

Eligibility: The SMARTeaching workshops are open to all RU-N faculty, lecturers, and Ph.D. students.
