USP Teaching Resources
Welcome Back to the USP for Fall 2014!
Ready for a new year of great teaching and learning? Whether you're a new Quest or Explore teacher or this is your second year teaching in the program, we hope you'll find some of what you need here. We're in the process of updating a lot of documents, so if you don't see something you need, please ask. We're happy to answer your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a new instructor or if you are teaching a USP (Quest or Explore) course for the first time this fall, please be sure to register for our late August workshops. These sessions will provide just the jump-start you need to finish getting ready for your fall courses.
We're experimenting with organizing this "landing page" as a sort of table of contents, as many of you noted that it can be hard to find things on our ever-expanding site of resources. Let us know how you like it!
