Faculty Development Programs and Special Events


Teaching Network for Early Career Faculty

The Teaching Network is a cohort-based, collegial program for faculty who consider themselves new, or relatively new, to teaching at GW. The time commitment is six two-hour sessions between October and March plus a peer review process in February, scheduled at your convenience, to give and receive feedback on class sessions.  

Course Design Institute

The Course Design Institute (CDI) is a “bootcamp” style, week-long program that guides faculty through the design of a new course or the redesign of an existing one in a facilitated, supported environment. Participants experience the iterative, dynamic, and scholarly process of learning-focused course design and the benefits of active learning. CDI is co-taught with a team of experienced faculty facilitators. 

Graduate Assistant Certification Course (UNIV0250)

This is a one-credit, online course required for all new graduate assistants (GA) and taught by the Faculty Development department. It is part of the Graduate Teaching Assistantship Program (GTAP) and administered through the Office of Graduate Student Assistantships and Fellowships office. Email or call 202-994-6822 for information.

Online Course Development

You can partner with the Instructional Core team to reimagine your course for a fully online teaching and learning experience. If you are interested in designing or redesigning a fully online course, contact your school or department to participate in this semester-long program.
