We offer a range of programming to help teaching staff at UCF achieve their teaching goals and to encourage a culture of continuous improvement in teaching and learning. Navigate the right-hand menu for more information on:
- Summer and Winter Faculty Development Conferences, our flagship events. During the weeks following exams, faculty join dozens of other colleagues to attend and/or deliver presentations, attend hands on workshops, and work on projects they have proposed. (Grant-funded)
- Knighted Faculty, our year-long comprehensive training in university-level teaching. Cohorts of 12 faculty members from across disciplines and faculty ranks engage in intensive peer learning culminating in broad-based teaching portfolios. (Grant-funded)
- Semester-long faculty development cohorts, in which colleagues from multiple disciplines get together to work on individual course innovation projects related to a specific pedagogical topic, and give feedback to each other in learning communities. (Some grant-funded)
- Teaching and Learning Days, one-off themed events addressing specific issues about teaching and learning at UCF.
- Adjunct Learning Communities, semester-long cohorts that address topics of specific interest to part-time faculty.
- GTA online and face-to-face training, and our semester-long Preparing Tomorrow’s Faculty Learning Community for graduate students.
- Academic Orientations for New Faculty and Adjuncts.
- Faculty Teaching Squares, teams of four faculty members who occasionally meet to discuss and reflect upon their own teaching, and who observe each other’s classes to enrich their own approaches to teaching.
