Three faculty members in the College of Education were named Teaching Academy Fellows by the University of Georgia Teaching Academy, a forum that was established by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the American Association for Higher Education to discuss, celebrate and promote teaching excellence.
Each academic year, both tenure track and non-tenure track faculty are selected as Teaching Academy Fellows and are later split into teams of four or five to work closely with two award-winning senior Teaching Academy faculty mentors throughout the year.
This year, out of 24 Fellows selected across the university, three were recognized in the College of Education, including:
Created in 2011, the Teaching Academy Program gives Fellows an opportunity to reflect on their teaching and develop instructional skills early in their careers. The program also helps faculty build bridges across campus, mentor their peers, receive mentorship from senior faculty members and network with award-winning educators at UGA.
The Fellows Program specifically addresses the university’s goal of fostering a community of scholars who are committed to teaching by working with a select group of early career faculty.
