About the TEACH Program
The TEACH (Teaching Effectiveness And Career enHancement) Program, which is modeled after the national Preparing Future Faculty movement, assists Ph.D. students in further developing teaching skills and exploring faculty roles. Program activities include one-on-one consultation, instructor videotaping, comprehensive class feedback, peer observations, project work, workshop attendance, and the development of a professional teaching portfolio. Past TEACH fellows estimate that the program requires 30- 40 hours per semester. Fellows selected for this program are paid a $500 stipend per semester for their active participation. Many departments at Texas Tech currently offer their TAs excellent opportunities for development and training. The TEACH program does not replace those programs in any way, rather it seeks to supplement their efforts.
The TEACH program offers individualized attention from consultants who specialize in pedagogical development and are committed to teaching excellence. The program provides a myriad of opportunities for self-reflection, and through these experiences, each successful fellow can expect to:
- Identify and apply new instructional strategies to improve student learning in his/her courses;
- Acquire knowledge, develop skills, and prepare documents to facilitate the transition to a career in academia; and
- Develop relationships with university faculty, staff, and peers to maintain a spirit of collegiality in the pursuit of professional development.
