Faculty Guild believes student success is about more than access and completion. It’s about connection, understanding and application. Therefore, purposeful teaching is vital. We offer a multi-term fellowship where faculty members bolster their existing teaching practices, supported by a circle of peers and a professional facilitator, in an online environment. Fellows learn by reflecting on their own teaching, not from disconnected, general guidance. And through analytics, fellows see how their teaching behaviors change over time and their institutions receive aggregated, non-identified data to measure return on investment. Our approach has been tested by hundreds of faculty members and is based on more than six years of research that was originally led by Dr. Gail Mellow. This refined method has shown to revitalize teaching and learning experiences, creating a lasting impact on the institution.
