Faculty and Staff

Teaching in UH Mānoa’s General Education program provides exciting opportunities for pedagogical growth. Through the topics and disciplinary approaches that define your scholarly pursuits, you can teach students how to engage with ethical issues, write better, apply critical and creative thinking to complex issues, and so forth. Integrating disciplinary content and effective pedagogical approaches to various areas of our GenEd curriculum can be both challenging and intellectually satisfying.

The General Education Office is here to help answer your questions, and support your professional growth through opportunities to participate in assessment of student achievement of our learning objectives, and the development of useful teaching resources. Additionally, you have opportunities to engage with like-minded teachers from across the University through service on a GenEd board, participation in or attendance at a pedagogical workshop, or the development of a proposal for a learning community. Alongside UH Mānoa’s many programs of study, our GenEd program is the heart of the university’s undergraduate academic experience.
