Welcome New UW Faculty!

Teaching@UW: Strategies, Resources, and Connections for New UW Faculty welcomes incoming faculty to the UW teaching community and connects them to resources that support evidence-based teaching.

Registration opens April 24th, 2024.

Open to incoming faculty on any UW campus, Teaching@UW includes live and asynchronous components focused on: 

  • Inclusive teaching
  • Active learning
  • Accessibility
  • Backward course design
  • Teaching the first day of class
  • Preparing for challenging moments
  • Fostering students’ mental health and well-being

Registration Information: Autumn 2024

Registration for the 2024-2025 program will open on April 24, 2024.

New faculty at any rank, including part-time and affiliate faculty, are invited to register. All participants who register will be enrolled in the Teaching@UW Canvas site for new UW faculty, which will open in August. Additionally, participants are invited to the program’s live sessions:

  • Welcome to Teaching@UW – Monday, Sept 9, 9:30AM -12:00PM (Zoom, with live captions)
  • Connecting on Campus – Tuesday, Sept 10, 11:30AM – 2:30PM (in person at the Seattle campus)

Faculty who are unable to attend the live sessions are still welcome to participate in the Canvas site at any time. After registration closes on Sept. 6, new faculty can access the Canvas site by emailing teaching@uw.edu with the subject line “Enroll in the Teaching@UW Faculty Canvas site.”

Faculty will not need a UW email address to register for the program. However, all participants will need a UW email account to access the Canvas site and Zoom sessions in August/September. Faculty members can reach out to their departments for a sponsored UW email if they do not yet have a UW email account set up and hope to access the Canvas site on or after August 1, 2024.

Teaching@UW: Strategies, Resources, and Connections for New UW Faculty has replaced the Faculty Fellows Program.
