WELCOME TO THE TEACHING ACADEMY!
The Teaching Academy is a series of virtual and in-person teaching workshops that are spread over August and September to ensure maximum accessibility. All UMass grad students and postdocs are invited to participate, regardless of teaching assignment or experience!
Our mission is to create a supportive environment that fosters pedagogies that are inclusive, research-based, and focused on student learning. We believe that teaching is an essential function of a public research university and an important part of a graduate education. At the Teaching Academy, we aim to promote collegiality and facilitate mentoring and expertise sharing among postdocs and graduate students from all nine schools and colleges at UMass.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Teaching Academy!
