Teaching Professionals Program (TPro2)

The Teaching Professionals Program (TPro2) works to build community and formalize the career objectives of the participants by hosting meetings that provide professional development, facilitate sharing of ideas, and allow general discussion. All specialized teaching faculty are welcome!

We want to reinforce this community of practice by:

  • Hosting gatherings for sharing ideas and experiences.
  • Sharing and implementing a framework for professional development through structured reflective practice.
  • Building centralized access to documents, communication, and planning. Example documents such as job descriptions and departmental policies affecting teaching faculty will be gathered and stored in a jointly accessible location.
  • Creating a teaching calendar to facilitate simple visits to our colleagues’ classrooms, allowing for an organic flow of best practices among peers.

Comments from participants

“The meetings have been exciting and enjoyable, and it is great to learn how others function in the college and to hear about research opportunities.” – Marcia Pool, BioE

“TPro2 is a great way to find out what others have tried successfully (and unsuccessfully) in the classroom. It has become part of my larger ‘Community of Practice’ in the realm of teaching and learning.” – Chris Schmitz, ECE
