Mid-Career Teaching Program

This cohort explores options for mid-career faculty. At mid-career, faculty and instructors typically have more opportunities to experiment and pursue interests such as:

  • experimenting with teaching methods,
  • collaborating with peers within or across disciplines,
  • mapping a new strategic direction in their teaching or professions, and
  • mentoring and coaching students.

The Mid-Career Teaching Program is open to Twin Cities full-time faculty and instructors of any rank that self-identify as “mid-career.”
