College Teaching for Future Faculty gives graduate students the basic pedagogical foundation they need to become inclusive and equity-minded professors with students who are engaged in the learning process. By the end of the program, they will have the beginnings of a portfolio that they can use for job searches, grant proposals, and teaching awards.
Participants complete the six modules related to the Framework of Teaching Excellence. All six modules will be covered as self-paced, asynchronous online lessons which, depending on the participant's experience level, each take about three hours to complete.
Depending on the participants’ level of experience, each module will take about 3 hours to complete.
The Center for Integrated Professional Development anticipates that most participants will complete the program in an academic year. However, we know that sometimes "life happens" and they may need to take longer than a year to finish. That's okay. As long as they are enrolled at ISU, graduate students are eligible to complete the program in the time frame that works best for them. College Teaching for Future Faculty must be completed before students can enroll in Course Design for Future Faculty.
