The Early Career Teaching Program is designed to assist faculty members and instructional staff early in their careers to develop and enhance their teaching skills and establish a foundation for a lifetime of creative and engaging teaching. Participants attend monthly workshops facilitated by master teachers at the U who will model and teach about a variety of effective pedagogical styles and methods. Participants also work one-to-one and in interdisciplinary small groups with one of the resource teachers (RTs), chosen because of their recognition as superior classroom teachers and their commitment to mentoring others.
Mid-career women faculty are uniquely positioned to explore innovations in teaching and learning within their respective disciplines and within the context of new initiatives at University of Minnesota. The Mid-Career Faculty Women's Community will bring together associate and full professors from across disciplines to provide structure and support to faculty exploring new methods related to their teaching practice.
The Mid-Career Teaching Community will bring together faculty from multiple disciplines interested in exchanging ideas and exploring current challenges in university teaching. This community will draw upon the experiences of participants in addition to research on the scholarship of teaching and learning and emergent research from evidence-based pedagogy. The specific topics for this teaching community will be determined by the participants using a consensus process at the start of the year.
The Faculty-Instructors of Color Community for 2012-13 invites faculty and instructors interested in discussing strategies about how the cultural identities of faculty of color and those from international backgrounds inform their professional lives. Research indicates that the professional and personal lives of faculty and instructors of color in academe are informed in numerous ways by their cultural identities. Students (majority and minority, domestic and international) often have different (though unstated) expectations for faculty and instructors of color. This community will draw upon the experiences of participants in addition to research on cultural identity and teaching in higher education. We will explore and support the teaching practice and professional lives of University faculty and instructors of color.
