Senior Teaching Fellows Program
This semester-long cohort program is for faculty who want to:
- invest in professional renewal to advance their teaching practice,
- redesign courses and activities using recent scholarship in the learning sciences, and
- learn from fellow members and contribute to the wisdom of teaching practice.
There are no age or rank requirements to participate in this cohort. We welcome participants from any academic discipline, and a variety of backgrounds and experience levels are expected. Most important, as a participant you should be ready for a change in your teaching - from reinvigorating your foundational skills to challenging your capacities for innovation.
The program consists of six bi-weekly, topic-based sessions. A short presentation will initiate each cohort meeting, followed by small and large group discussion. Register even if you are unable to attend all sessions. Common topics include:
- What the best college teachers do
- Small adjustments to teaching with big impact
- Developing memorable presentations
- Informal assessments to gauge student learning
- Using technology wisely and effectively
- Connecting with your students OR open topic session
This program is not currently open for registration. Indicate your interest in future participation and we'll notify you when it is offered next.
As interested instructors, you may also request individual consultations with David Langley, the program facilitator, to discuss further how to apply these topics to your own teaching.
