Future Faculty Program

The Future Faculty Program offers graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from all disciplines preparation for teaching responsibilities in higher education.

The Future Faculty Program is a self-paced program for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Participants who satisfy the program requirements receive a letter of completion.

Benefits

For graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who expect to apply for faculty positions, this program offers multiple benefits. This program is also useful for those who are in a teaching role at Northeastern—such as a teaching assistant, lab supervisor, or instructor of record—and who want to develop and reflect on their teaching practices in the more immediate future. Benefits of participating in the Future Faculty Program include:

  • Preparing for faculty-level teaching responsibilities, from designing a course to assembling evidence of teaching effectiveness
  • Crafting common professional documents related to teaching, such as a syllabus and a statement of teaching philosophy
  • Developing and receiving feedback on a teaching portfolio of materials and reflections that can be shared and adapted for a variety of audiences

Expectations

To complete this program, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows participate in CATLR programming in key areas of teaching and learning, as well as document and receive feedback on the related teaching materials that they produce for their teaching portfolios. Participants keep track of their progress in the program with this checklist.

Below is a list of the key areas of the Future Faculty Program. Click into each row to see Fall 2021 events and self-paced modules that fulfill these key areas. All times are in Eastern Time.

*Reminder: FFP participants can complete self-paced modules to fulfill event participation for up to two key areas (i.e., 1 self-paced workshop module is equivalent to attending 1 synchronous workshop).
