Congratulations Preparing Future Faculty Teaching Academy Graduates!
On October 29th, the first cohort of the Preparing Future Faculty Teaching Academy (PFFTA) was recognized in a celebration dinner at which they received certificates of completion. This new program serves doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows across Johns Hopkins University who are considering academic careers that will involve teaching. Through courses, workshops, and teaching experiences, participants acquired an overview of pedagogy, explored different educational models, acquired teaching and assessment skills, and worked with faculty teaching mentors in classrooms, online courses, or laboratory environments.
The following students completed each of the three required phases, demonstrating their interest and commitment to becoming stellar future faculty. Congratulations!
