The purpose for the Academy of Effective Teaching is to recognize the importance of effective teaching to the successful education of the students and, thus, to the mission of the university. To this end we are devoted to fostering effective teaching by assisting in the development of good teachers and the rewarding of accomplished teachers.

Members of the Academy assist at orientation programs for new faculty, other teaching professionals, and graduate teaching assistants. They also offer confidential mentoring on request.

The Academy also supports seminars that focus on teaching and learning strategies. Faculty and G.T.A.s from all disciplines share resources, techniques, and experiences that promote effective teaching and successful learning.
