Active Learning Lab Fellowship
The Active Learning Lab Fellowship is a partnership between University Libraries and the Academy for Teaching and Learning. In 2018, Baylor unveiled the Active Learning Lab (first floor, Moody library), a flexible, technology-enhanced 56-seat learning space whose primary purpose is providing space and resources for instructors using active learning methods.
Adjunct Teaching Workshop
This workshop will highlight effective teaching and assessment strategies and is oriented toward adjunct faculty and part-time faculty new to teaching at Baylor who want to brush up in preparation for the Fall semester.
The Baylor Fellows Program recognizes professors across the disciplinary spectrum who exemplify excellence in teaching. Baylor Fellows are committed to pedagogical innovation, inspirational teaching, and the cultivation of these among Baylor faculty.
Also known as Teaching Observations, the ATL offers observation of and feedback on teaching.

Seminars for Excellence in Teaching
Since 2008, the Academy for Teaching and Learning has hosted a series of one-hour Seminars for Excellence in Teaching (SET) to help colleagues meet the historic expectations of excellence in teaching at Baylor. All members of the Baylor community are invited to attend SET in accord with our core commitments to seek learning and apply knowledge and to pursue excellence through continuous improvement.
STEM Ed Journal Club
Growing out of the Faculty Interest Groups program, this program offers multiple sections with various topics of emphasis. Participants explore publications related to both scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) and discipline-based education research (DBER) to generate discussion and build a community of support for enacting new teaching methods.
Summer Ethics Seminar
The Summer Ethics Seminar is designed to cultivate increased ethical literacy across the Baylor campus. Through a partnership between the Academy for Teaching & Learning and the Baylor Ethics Initiative, this 1-week summer seminar invites faculty into an interdisciplinary conversation that illuminates how ethics is already present within and yet might further shape their teaching and research.
Summer Faculty Institute
During the 5-week Summer Faculty Institute participants converse about and explore elements of teaching, research, and collegiality extending from constructing syllabi to managing preparation-time wisely, from enlisting colleagues as critics of our writing to managing writing-time wisely, from serving on departmental committees to taking part in the conversation about what it means to be an R1 Christian University.
