Faculty Teaching Program

Academic Affairs, the Center for Teaching and Learning, and the Center for Extended and Distance Education co-sponsor the Faculty Teaching Program, which recognizes the importance of excellence in teaching at Austin Peay.

In exchange for a course release, the Faculty Teaching Program offers an opportunity for selected faculty to study teaching strategies that can enhance student success. Accepted applicants meet 1-4:30 p.m. each Tuesday of the fall semester. Additional responsibilities include completing weekly assignments, participating in individual teaching consultations, and delivering a professional-development workshop on a teaching strategy.

The Faculty Teaching Program fosters an exploratory environment that requires participants to relegate all other campus responsibilities to non-program hours. It is part of the Campus Connection Initiative, which aims to establish sustainable networks that can facilitate cross-campus and off-campus transfers of information and other resources for student, university, and community success.

The cohort is selected by the Faculty-Development Planning Committee. For more information, please contact Dr. Gray Kane.
