Academy for Teaching Excellence

Harper College launched an Academy for Teaching Excellence (2013) to holistically coordinate and expand professional development for full and adjunct faculty. Led by a distinguished chair for teaching excellence and an administrative staff, the Academy has experienced success since its inception. The best attended sessions are those directly related to the Academy’s mission of aligning offerings with student success initiatives.  These sessions focused on engaging teaching strategies, assessing student work, and working with students in the First Year Seminar course. During the summer of 2016 the Academy began implementation of a new professional development approach--Communities of Practice (CoP). This new initiative brings faculty together with a shared interest for improving classroom success based on a specific strategy or intervention. The fall 2017 school year will mark the first full year of the CoP initiative and measurement of its success.
