Warrior Teaching Days

Warrior Teaching Days banner


Warrior Teaching Days (WTD) is a campuswide opportunity for you as a Wayne State University (WSU) instructor to visit a colleague's course, attend a workshop, and engage in informal conversations about teaching. The week is meant to spark conversations about teaching, give WSU instructors the rare opportunity to sit in on each others classes, and explore interesting topics and teaching styles that may be within or outside of your own academic department.
