Pioneer Teaching and Learning Academy seeks Scholars, Mentors

The Pioneer Teaching and Learning Academy (PTLA), which provides peer support and a forum for growth/enhancement in teaching and learning, is accepting applications for PTLA Scholars and PTLA Mentors for 2022-2023.

The academy, sponsored by the Office of Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT) and the Center for Faculty Excellence, will provide education and development activities for face-to-face, hybrid, and online teaching and learning practices. The PTLA experience includes introductory activities in teaching development, learning theory, and curricular innovation. The activities then will be supported by meetings over the course of the academic year.

Participants, known as PTLA Scholars, will each be paired with a mentor. This dyad also will be supported by personnel from TLT. The team will collaborate to transform teaching and learning practices of the scholars and disseminate their projects to colleagues.
