The UW-Madison Teaching Academy was created in 1993, gathering together scholars who demonstrated excellence in teaching. Join our nearly 400 strong membership and get involved in our many initiatives, events, and programs.
The Teaching Academy has three membership types: Fellow, Future Faculty Partner (FFP), and Affiliate
The Teaching Academy offers two annual awards: the Distinguished Fellow Award and the Distinguished Future Faculty Partner Award.
Recipients are awarded based on demonstrated sustained excellence in teaching and learning on the UW-Madison campus and dedicated service to the Teaching Academy. Teaching Academy award recipients cannot be current Executive Committee members.
The UW Teaching Academy Executive Committee is comprised of distinguished fellows and future faculty partners who actively work towards the betterment of teaching and learning at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Fellows and future faculty partners serve on the Executive Committee for a term of three years, with an option for renewal. This committee spearheads all major Teaching Academy events and activities throughout the course of the year, providing invaluable insight and experience to the Teaching & Learning community.
In addition to regular Teaching & Learning professional development sessions, such as LEaP, U-CLaSS, and the twice-weekly Active Teaching Labs, the Academy holds and co-sponsors several major events each year.
