In this comprehensive university devoted to teaching, research, and service, teaching is a critical component of faculty activity. Whether you are joining us as a brand new Graduate Teaching Associate or as a tenured Professor, what you do in the classroom is the University as it is experienced by our students, their parents, and the citizens of Tennessee who support us. To excel in the classroom, you need an excellent infrastructure, which is what we are committed to providing you.
The University of Tennessee Teaching Guide is an annual publication of the Tennessee Teaching and Learning Center and is intended for those new to university teaching and for those transitioning to UT from teaching
positions elsewhere. Included in this guide is information regarding teaching and learning support centers,
academic policies, advising information, classroom locations, and the evaluation of students. Although
no single guide is able to address all teaching concerns, this guide is a resource to help you find out what you
need to know and who you may need to contact for teaching support.
