Welcome to the CEMS TEaching ACtivity Hub (TEACH)!

TEACH was created to support CEMS educators in the advancement of their teaching and to support students through improved learning experiences. Through TEACH, you can:

  • Celebrate the educational legacy of our instructors and share NEWS on teaching and learning in CEMS.
  • Learn about upcoming EVENTS and CEMS-relevant training opportunities.
  • Find useful RESOURCES on innovative teaching practices and instructional research.
  • Share your experience and SUBMIT FEEDBACK and ideas that might be of interest to others in the CEMS community.

While TEACH focuses on programs within CEMS, we welcome collaboration and inspiration from others in the wider UVM community and beyond!


TEACH is supported by the CEMS Pedagogical Innovation Committee, whose mission focuses on three key elements:

  1. Community: Creating opportunities to connect with colleagues across disciplines and exchange ideas on best teaching practices.
  2. Innovation: Developing and disseminating pedagogical resources, tailored to the needs of CEMS faculty and students.
  3. Reflection: Regular assessment of teaching practices and student learning outcomes to better-inform curricular decisions and programs within CEMS.

CEMS Pedagogical Innovation Committee:

  • Radhakrishna Dasari (Computer Science)
  • Britt Holmen (Civil & Environmental Engineering)
  • Zachary Ballard (Mechanical Engineering)
  • Laura Marthaler (Mathematics)
  • Richard Single (Statistics)
  • Eva-Marie Cosoroaba (Electrical & Biomedical Engineering)
  • Priyantha Wijesinghe (Civil & Environmental Engineering, co-Chair)
  • Courtney D Giles (Civil & Environmental Engineering, co-Chair)
