Fall Teaching Academy for Professors

Led by Ruth Ahn, Education

Call for Applications: Due July 1, 2017

This is a revised call for participation, as the Summer Teaching Academy for Professors has been rescheduled to fall to allow for broader participation.  Past participants have shared student average exam scores and course evaluations increased as much as 20.8% and 25.97% respectively from the previous year as a result of participating in the Teaching Academy.  They also shared enthusiasm and satisfaction to improve faculty and student learning.  This opportunity is truly win-win-win:  Win for improved teaching and course evaluations, win for enhanced student success and win for faculty satisfaction!

The Fall TAP (F-TAP) will begin with a 3-day workshop September 5-7 and selected fellows will meet 5 times during the fall quarter (see the attached CFP).   It is a short, quarter-long academy that you might find easier to fit in your schedule than a year-long TAP.  If you are passionate about improving your teaching and student learning and would like to discover new and effective ways to engage your students, this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss. All faculty, both tenure line and lecturer, are eligible.

The application deadline is July 1.  See the call for applications.

Please contact Dr. Ruth Ahn at to e-mail the application or for any questions.
