We care about good teaching, and would love to hear your stories! In 1993, the UW-Madison Faculty Senate established the Teaching Academy to gather together educators who demonstrated excellence in teaching and are concerned about teaching and learning at this research university. For more information on UW Teaching Academy history and origins, please see our 1998-2002 history and strategic plan. Here’s a list of our members.
The mission of the Academy is to promote, recognize and support excellence in teaching and learning among faculty, staff and students across campus and beyond. It operates in accordance with a set of mission and bylaws and is made up of approximately 500 Fellows, Future Faculty Partners, and Affiliates from a wide range of campus departments and programs.
We would love to have you join us! Become a Member!
FELLOWS are faculty, academic staff, and outreach instructors with three years of campus experience who have nominated for demonstrating excellence in teaching and a commitment to improving the quality of teaching and learning across this campus.
FFPs (Future Faculty Partners) include graduate students and postdocs with at least one-year residence status on the UW-Madison campus, and three semesters of teaching experience with demonstrated teaching excellence.
AFFILIATES are instructors, educators, post-docs, and graduate students who have demonstrated interest in improving teaching and learning — through application or to recognize contributions to Teaching Academy events, such as to those who present at our Fall and winter Retreats. The Teaching Academy encourages those with Affiliate status to apply to become Fellows and Future Faculty Partners.
DISTINGUISHED MEMBERS are Fellows and FFPs who have continued to demonstrate sustained excellence in Teaching and Learning on the UW–Madison campus, and have been chosen by their peers to receive an award from the Teaching Academy.
MEMBER INQUIRY: Do you need to update your status from FFP to Fellow? Would you like to check if a colleague is a member before beginning the nomination process? Other questions? Please send the Teaching Academy a brief email
