Great teaching can be learned

The goal of the Instructional Moves (IM) project is to help you incorporate and refine high-leverage teaching practices tailored to the higher education context.

  • Step into colleagues’ classrooms to observe exemplary teaching practices

  • Hear professors and students explain what makes these practices powerful

  • Access research and resources to implement instructional moves in your own classroom
