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.
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

The SHU Core Curriculum is rooted in questions central but not exclusive to the Catholic intellectual tradition. Seton Hall's Signature Courses stress student self-knowledge, a passion for intellectual and ethical engagement, and the development of critical thinking, thoughtful communication, and servant leadership habits for a diverse and evolving world.
Teaching 21st-Century Skills
Seton Hall promotes faculty efforts to develop innovative teaching and learning methods and activities that effectively prepare students for the demands of the 21st century. The Center for Faculty Development assists this work with workshops that promote intentional teaching of 21st-century skills, including creativity, empathy, critical thinking, information/data literacy, advanced platform skills, resilience, and lifelong learning.
Center for Catholic Studies
Founded at Seton Hall University in 1997, The Center for Catholic Studies is dedicated to fostering a dialogue between the Catholic intellectual tradition and all areas of study and contemporary culture through scholarly research and publications and ongoing programs for faculty, students, and the general public.
