Best Practices in University Teaching

An in-person BPUT is hosted annually in January on the Homewood Campus. In summer 2022, we will be offering an online version of this workshop for interested JHU faculty! Please see below for details and to register!

The Center for Teaching Excellence and Innovation is pleased to offer Best Practices in University Teaching (BPUT): a multi-day workshop for Johns Hopkins faculty. The workshop will present pedagogical best practices used at Johns Hopkins and peer institutions.

This is a great opportunity for new faculty who are interested in learning about evidence-based teaching practices. The workshop is open to all Johns Hopkins faculty and lecturers from any discipline. External university colleagues can also attend.


An annual in-person (2 day) workshop is offered in January; however, this summer we are pleased to offer an online version as we did in summer 2021.

This online workshop will be held Monday, July 25 - Friday, July 29, 2022. Participants must attend synchronous live sessions held DAILY from 9:00-11:00 AM (EDT). These live sessions will be followed by asynchronous sessions/work which should be completed daily (estimate: ~one hour), but can be done at your leisure.
