The Teaching Professor

OTEI has negotiated a group site license allowing members of the Clemson University community free access to The Teaching Professor, a respected higher-education newsletter produced monthly by Magna Publications. As most of its articles are carefully edited excerpts from other publications (books, journal articles, other newsletter articles), it is a very time efficient way to keep up on research and trends in college-level teaching and learning. The articles range in nature from concrete teaching tips to research findings to theory.

You can access this publication from an on-campus by going to, selecting The Teaching Professor, and clicking on "Log In."  You will not need a code or password.

To access the newsletter off campus, create an account.  As each new issue is published, you will receive an email with links to access individual articles as well as a printable PDF of the entire issue.  To create an account:

1.      Go to

2.      Select “Create a new account”, complete all fields under “Required information” and click "Create Account."

3.      Open the email used to register your account and click the link to complete your registration.

4.      Enter your email or username and password and select "Login."

5.      Select the “Group Subscriptions” tab at the top of the page.

6.      In the red box, enter the authorization code: CLEMSONIP

7.      Select "Activate" to access the subscription.

This is a one-time task. Thereafter you will have access to The Teaching Professor and can search archives, and you will receive an e-mail reminder each time a new issue is published. 

Please do not share the authorization code with anyone outside our campus community.

To access your existing Magna account:
