Open Doors on Teaching

Open Doors on Teaching is a unique mentorship program for University of Toronto faculty. Presented by the University of Toronto’s Teaching Academy and the Centre of Teaching Support & Innovation, Open Doors provides faculty with the opportunity to learn from the experience and expertise of their colleagues.

Members of the University of Toronto’s Teaching Academy, winners of the President’s Teaching Award, will welcome faculty into their classrooms for selected lectures (i.e., all participants in the Open Doors program must register for any lectures they wish to attend). Faculty can observe the Academy member teaching and then engage in a post-class discussion with the Academy member. This approach not only provides learning opportunities for faculty but also opens up the discussion on pedagogical topics that many faculty might not otherwise encounter.
