Curriculum Change Forms
Wichita State University has provided University Syllabus Template, which include guidelines for information that should be included on every course syllabus including Title IX, Academic Honesty, the University Grading Scale, and other resources for students.
Wichita State’s Learning Management System is Blackboard. Whether you are new to Blackboard or have years of experience, we encourage you to work with our Instructional Design & AccessTeam (IDA) to prepare for the upcoming semester. Please contact IDA to schedule a Blackboard Orientation.
Classrooms across campus are equipped with uniform technology and media equipment. Attend one of the scheduled Classroom Technology Training sessions to be able to receive keys to your scheduled classrooms.
The Office of Online Learning and the Instructional Design & Technology group have many resources for online teaching at WSU, including best practice guidelines, procedures, and an Online Faculty Fellows group.
University Tenure, Promotion, Full Professor Incentive Review, and Post Tenure Review information can be found on the Faculty Senate website. Policies are also posted for individual colleges.
Universal Design in Courses
The standards for course accessibility are evolving and codifying through practice and legal action. To ensure that you are always providing the most accessible course you can, read about our Accessibility Responsibilities, and contact Instructional Design & Access for consultation.
Academy for Effective Teaching
The Academy for Effective Teaching recognizes the importance of effective teaching to the successful education of students and, thus, to the mission of the University. Members of the Academy assist new and existing faculty as well as graduate teaching assistants by offering confidential mentoring or sharing of resources and experiences. This is a wonderful resource for any teaching professional on campus.
