Faculty Fellows Leadership Institute

The CET Faculty Fellows Leadership Institute is comprised of leaders in teaching within each school who are appointed by their dean to help advance practices, initiatives, and policies that further the school’s goals toward teaching excellence. Fellows first develop a richer knowledge base of the principles of teaching and learning by attending CET’s Faculty Fellow Leadership Institute, and then use that knowledge to support their school’s efforts to develop, evaluate, and reward teaching in a systematic and comprehensive way, using evidence-based practices.
