Early Career Teaching Academy
Most new faculty at large public universities enter the professoriate with training and support to conduct research, but few also enter with equivalent preparation and support for their teaching. The Early Career Teaching Academy provides a setting within which faculty members can create and develop a powerful teaching career, one that is rooted in evidence-based active learning strategies and high-impact educational practices, and designed to facilitate student success. Faculty who become Early Career Teaching Fellows will be in a position to play a leading role in efforts to develop a culture of expert teaching within departments and schools at IUPUI, to document and promote their teaching successes, and to serve as effective teaching mentors for future faculty. The Academy fosters and supports a multi-disciplinary network of Early Career Teaching Fellows that promotes excellent teaching and rich student learning.
The academy convenes in two intensive sessions, one full-day and one half-day session. These sessions focus on the effective development and assessment of active learning teaching strategies suited to IUPUI’s diverse student body. By the second session, faculty are able to articulate the teaching strategies they plan to implement. Academy fellows have the opportunity to participate in faculty learning communities and teaching-related events over the course of the next year.
The next academy will be held on Friday, February 3, 2017, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday February 10, 2017, 1 to 5 p.m.
The academy targets full-time faculty members in their first, second, or third year of teaching at IUPUI or IUPU Columbus.
Interested faculty members need to submit an online application, due on Thursday, December 15, 2016. Once the application is submitted, an email will be sent to the applicant's department chair or supervisor asking him or her to endorse the application.
