    Teaching Network for Early Career Faculty

    The Teaching Network is a supportive cohort program that combines networking with colleagues, pedagogy workshops, and peer review of teaching to help you navigate those first years as a professor. We meet six times throughout the year over lunch in addition to providing feedback on each other's teaching.

    The program runs October - March. For more information, visit go.gwu.edu/teachingnetwork.

    • Experiences with active learning and understanding of learning-centered design
    • Access to a resource-packed website
