Provost’s Senior Faculty Teaching Scholars
The inaugural cohort of Provost’s Senior Faculty Teaching scholars was announced at the annual Celebration of Teaching and Learning Symposium on March 12th, 2019.
What is the Provost’s Senior Faculty Teaching Scholars program?
This new program aims to develop a cohort of senior faculty who will each have the opportunity to create a vision and plan for supporting, changing and innovating the culture of teaching and learning within their own department or school, and across campus.
How will it work?
In partnership with the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), the Provost’s Senior Faculty Teaching Scholars may choose from a range of teaching and learning initiatives including: building community among faculty around teaching through outreach, liaising and hosting events in the CTL, planning and facilitating disciplinary conversation(s), workshop(s) and/or panel(s), or proposing a project that has broad and sustainable impact on teaching and learning at Columbia that goes beyond a single course or curriculum. The CTL will work with each Senior Faculty Teaching Fellow to develop a year-long plan that aligns their work in this program with the needs of the Columbia teaching community.
How are faculty nominated for this program?
Deans nominate senior faculty who are both outstanding teachers and well-respected researchers in their disciplines.
