Through its core course, Teaching in Higher Education, followed by a practicum course, the Preparing Future Faculty Program provides a teaching and learning forum in which participants engage with a multidisciplinary, cross-cultural mix of doctoral candidates and post-doctoral fellows. Participants discuss learning theory and strategies, develop teaching skills, create classroom and job search materials, and work with faculty from a range of institutional types.
The program is sponsored by the University of Minnesota Graduate School. To receive a letter of recognition and certificate of program participation, students complete two core courses: GRAD 8101 and GRAD 8200 "Practicum for Future Faculty." Students may also register for topics courses offered under the GRAD 8200 designation. Some graduate programs may have different requirements for doctoral students participating in this program. Contact the PFF Program coordinator if you have questions.
