Teaching Support

Various supports for teaching are available to new faculty and/or those with less teaching experience.

Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL)

Boston University provides support for all faculty members through the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). Their frequent workshops, presentations and conferences provide exposure to successful and innovative teaching tools and approaches. They also provide grants for course development in a competitive process each year. Learn more about the CTL here.

Junior Faculty Mentoring Group

New faculty participate for two years in the Junior Faculty Mentoring Group. This group meets monthly, and is led by the Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs, who coordinate with senior faculty. The group covers research, teaching and service topics.

Current Mentor: Amie Grills | agrills@bu.edu

Junior Faculty Teaching Observation

During the first two years of joining Wheelock, junior faculty may be observed in their teaching in a process that responds to the faculty member’s teaching goals and purposes, while giving useful feedback on a particular lesson.
