Duke does not have a centralized faculty instructional support unit. Such support is distributed across various units in the university.

Language, Arts & Media Program
The Duke Language, Arts and Media Program (LAMP) focuses on building strong, contemporary communication skills in our students, and providing pedagogy mentoring and resources for faculty members. LAMP offers individual consultations to faculty members to discuss challenges with and concerns about teaching, particularly assignment design, integrating and experimenting with written work, oral presentations and critical use of media. It also offers a year-long workshop series for faculty selected to be Bacca Felows. And the program offers financial support for pedagogy experimentation. Website: lamp.duke.edu.
Trinity Office of Assessment managed the course assessment for the college, and can provide orientation on our online process. See URL.
