Deep Teaching Residency (DTR) Faculty Development Program

What is the Deep Teaching Residency (DTR)?

The Deep Teaching Residency (DTR) is a year-long faculty development program in inclusive pedagogy that aims to meaningfully transform faculty mindsets and practices. ‘Deep Teaching’ is an inclusive pedagogical philosophy that seeks to engage faculty in a critical evaluation of how instructor self-awareness, students’ personal histories, and broad social structures impact the development of an equitable pedagogy . 

Included in the year-long experience is a five-day immersive in-person workshop (contingent on health and safety measures related to COVID 19), where we come together as co-learners to examine, discuss, and apply inclusive teaching theories, models, and practices.

  • Prior to the workshop, participants will engage with and reflect on readings that provide a foundation for our time together.
  • Participants will then gather at the workshop for interactive sessions, large and small group discussions, time to work on the development of a project, and some free time to informally socialize or take time for independent self-care (See ‘Face-to-Face Workshop at a Glance’ below).
  • Following the workshop, participants will engage in a virtual learning community throughout the academic year to maintain connection, conversation, and support while implementing projects at their home institutions.
