The Center for Teaching Excellence

The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) promotes a culture committed to continued advancement of best practices in pedagogy across the Franklin University enterprise. We strive to apply systematic and standardized approaches that lead to data-informed decisions related to teaching qualifications, engagement opportunities, robust faculty development support, and the celebration of teaching excellence. In addition, we provide thought leadership and operational support by collaborating with faculty and administration in the following areas:​

•Credentialing and scheduling Faculty​

•Training and Instructional Coaching (IC)

•Partnering with Faculty Development Committee of Senate

•Offering faculty development courses using research-based best practices​ in teaching

•Promoting excellence in teaching through hosting annual teaching events

•Celebrating teaching excellence through awards and global teaching opportunities

In keeping with its mission, the vision of CTE is to apply systematic and standardized approaches that lead to data-informed decisions related to teaching qualifications, engagement opportunities, robust faculty development support, and the celebration of teaching excellence.

The approach of CTE is to optimize advanced technical capabilities and collaboratively construct comprehensive teaching evaluation processes in order to establish meaningful metrics related to faculty qualifications and performance that lead to actionable insights and demonstrate the quality of instruction across the Franklin enterprise.

CTE also collaboratively works with the Faculty Development Committee of Faculty Senate to construct meaningful support opportunities for part-time faculty.
