Faculty Development at UVU

The Teaching Excellence Program includes faculty development opportunities that lead to certification and accredited international recognition for teaching excellence. By engaging with these opportunities, UVU faculty can gain evidence to support the Retention, Tenure, and Promotion (RTP) process while enriching their teaching practice.

How Do I Get Started? 

There are three key ways to get started with the Teaching Excellence Program at UVU.

  1. Attend a 45 minute Introduction to Teaching Excellence session. These are offered multiple times throughout the year and include a light lunch. 
  2. Meet with a Faculty Development Coach. The Office of Teaching and Learning provides a team of Coaches to support your faculty development journey. Email TeachingLearning@uvu.edu to set up a 45 minute coaching session. Your first session will cover the Teaching Excellence Program and will involve a self-assessment.
  3. Join any of our advertised events and workshops. All of these are part of the Teaching Excellence Program framework. At these events and workshops, we can advise you on your next steps.
