About TEACH Events

Main content start

Like the Teaching Commons as a whole, TEACH events are organized and facilitated by people across the university in many different roles. We are invested in fostering a strong culture of teaching and learning. TEACH stands for the core values we believe Stanford teaching can embody (Timely, Engaging, Accessible, Connected, Humane).

Frequently Asked Questions

Who are TEACH events for?
