Faculty Fellows Program

The Academy of Teaching Excellence Faculty Fellow program is a teaching and professional development opportunity designed to work with your specific and unique needs. Although it is geared toward tenure-track faculty, the program is open to all faculty members regardless of rank or status.

Becoming a Faculty Fellow

The full program includes completion of the following criteria during the academic year:

  • Attendance of at least four LT&ITC workshops
  • Constructing a Teaching Philosophy Statement
  • Creating a formal Faculty Development Plan
  • Consulting with a faculty Teaching Mentor or the Center's Instructional Design Specialist, and
  • Writing a Reflection Document on one's teaching and professional development experiences during the program.

Participants are encouraged to adapt the program requirements to fit their own particular situation and circumstances.

Faculty who successfully complete the year-long program will receive the Center's Faculty Fellow designation for the coming year and are encouraged to participate as a consultant and resource for this year's participants in the program. Program participants from the past two years have found that it provides excellent professional development support and growth.

Because this is a academic year-long program, you must enroll in the program at the beginning of the Fall semester. There are between 15-20 slots available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have any questions or wish to sign up please e-mail Tom.Brinthaupt@mtsu.edu.
