Center for Teaching and Learning

Faculty Fellows Program

The Faculty Fellows Program orients new faculty to the UW campus community. The Program is facilitated by a number of campus educators, including those that have received campus-wide teaching awards. Presenters and facilitators actively engage our new faculty members on a number of topics including, but not limited to:

  • What you can expect as a new UW faculty member
  • Balancing the demands of successful teaching and research
  • Mentoring graduate students
  • Career development and campus-wide policy for review and promotion
  • Effective teaching methods and techniques including:
    • Using rubrics
    • Developing a repertoire of active learning strategies
    • Forming and managing group work
    • Using technology to enhance student learning
    • Gathering and using student feedback to improve teaching and learning
    • Academic integrity: From process to attaining positive outcomes

The 2018 Faculty Fellows Program will be held September 5-7. Planning for the Program is currently underway. Please check back in June 2018 for updates.
