Center for Teaching and Learning

Faculty Fellows Program

September 9 & 10, ONLINE

The Faculty Fellows Program (FFP) introduces new faculty to the UW teaching community. The program is facilitated by a number of campus educators, including those that have received campus-wide teaching awards.

The goals of the faculty fellows program are to:

  • introduce you to UW teaching cultures, practices, and resources
  • connect you to other teaching scholars and practitioners at UW
  • engage with evidence-based, equitable teaching strategies that advance student learning
  • provide opportunities to experience centrally supported learning technologies as students

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
  • Navigating the demands of successful teaching and research
  • Recruiting, mentoring, and working with undergraduate and graduate students
  • Career development and campus-wide policy for review and promotion
  • Equity and “inclusion”
  • Evidence-based teaching

How to register

Participation in the Faculty Fellows Program is by invitation. UW departments determine which of their new faculty members receive invitations.

Once an email invitation has been received, invitees must RSVP by registering through an online WebQ survey. The link is provided within the email and invitees will need their UW NetID to access the online form. Submission of the registration form confirms full participation.

Instructions on how to set up a UW NetID can be found on IT Connect’s About UW NetIDs page.
