I've long been committed to creating opportunities for IU and its faculty to promote, nurture, and recognize excellence in teaching and learning within and across campuses, schools, and disciplines. This is precisely the vision of IU's Faculty Academy on Excellence in Teaching (FACET). FACET members, since the organization's inception in 1989, have a history of pedagogical innovation, commitment to studying and sharing best practices in teaching and learning, and embracing the notion that we teach and learn in community.
Through the years, FACET has been fortunate to have many collaborators across IU who believe in the pursuit of excellence in teaching and learning. Two more recent outcomes of these important collaborations include the Teaching for Student Success (TSS) self-enrolling course (available through expand.iu.edu) and the Teaching.IU website (teaching.iu.edu). I am proud to say that both resources are built by IU for IU.
