Recognizing and developing Purdue’s best teachers
What is the Teaching Academy?
The Teaching Academy at Purdue strives to bring together the best teaching faculty and graduate students across campus to create a collective voice for teaching excellence. Members are nominated and selected by their peers.
In partnership with the Office of the Provost and the Center for Instructional Excellence, the Teaching Academy sponsors a variety of programs and activities fostering educational creativity, innovation, and effectiveness both in- and outside the classroom. Additionally, the Teaching Academy supports and encourages teaching faculty and graduate students to apply for teaching awards honoring and recognizing excellence in teaching.
Membership in the Teaching Academy recognizes outstanding and scholarly teaching in the graduate, undergraduate, or engagement programs of Purdue University.
