On the recommendations of the UWGB Teaching Effectiveness Working Group, the University Committee and the Provost’s Office agreed to a two-year program to pilot a peer teacher mentoring effort. The UC, in consultation with the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning, calls for two tenured faculty teaching mentors to lead the effort. These teaching mentors will each work with eight untenured colleagues in two cohorts each over two years. As compensation, each teaching mentor will receive one course reassignment for each of the two years piloting the project.
Please send the following in one PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 1, 2022:
- A short statement of teaching philosophy and how you would use that philosophy to work with mentees (no more than one page).
- A short vita that focuses on teaching performance and professional development related to teaching (no more than two pages).
- A letter from your unit chair that affirms their support for a course reassignment (ad hoc funds are available from the Provost’s Office to support this reassignment).
- (Optional): Up to three supporting documents highlighting teaching effectiveness (e.g., course syllabi, examples of student work, Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, letter of support from a colleague who can speak to teaching and/or mentoring work you’ve done, etc.).
