Page history last edited by Monica 5 years, 9 months ago Saved with comment



The Rice University Teaching Archive was established by Josh Eyler, director of the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE). It is a digital collection of syllabi, assignments and other pedagogical materials created by Rice faculty.  It is anticipated that such a collection would provide resources that could be adapted by other instructors in their own teaching, document the university‚Äôs excellence in education, and be useful to researchers studying the history of higher education or the scholarship of teaching and learning (it would also be a kick for alumni). Initially starting with a pilot materials focused on several award-winning teachers at Rice such as John Hutchinson and Dennis Huston.
