University Teaching Fellows

In August 1995, the Academic Council endorsed the establishment of a Seton Hall University Teaching Fellows Program. The prototype for the program had been started a generation prior, in 1974, by the Lilly Endowment. The Seton Hall program ran from 1996 through 2003, and we are pleased to announce that the Center for Faculty Development is instituting the program again, beginning with the spring 2017 semester. Its purpose is threefold: to promote excellence in undergraduate teaching and learning; to provide support for faculty in the tenure and/or promotion process; and to cultivate faculty to assume leadership positions within the university community.

Peer Teaching Observation Program (PTOP)

Starting this semester, the Center for Faculty Development is offering the Peer Teaching Observation Program for faculty members at any level and in any position who would like confidential, formative feedback about their teaching. The program gives instructors the opportunity to gather suggestions and ideas to improve their teaching in a way that is informal and low stakes, and the instructor may use the assessment in any way s/he sees fit. This is intended to complement the official classroom observations done by departments.

If you are interested in participating, either as an observee or an observer, contact Dr. Elizabeth McCrea
