Professional Development for Early-Career Faculty

Madison Teaching and Learning Excellence (MTLE) aims to improve undergraduate education at UW-Madison by supporting early-career faculty to become fast, effective, and efficient starters in teaching.

Over the course of a year, each cohort of MTLE Faculty Fellows engages in a modular curriculum designed to: (a) quickly connect Fellows with the many specialized programs across campus focused on teaching excellence, (b) effectively innovate in their classes with learner-centered practices proven to enhance learning, and (c) foster a cross-campus community of practice shown to live well beyond Fellows’ time in MTLE. Through this program, MTLE Fellows report greater satisfaction and impact with their teaching, resulting in an efficiency that affords them more time for research, outreach, and service.
