Provost's Teaching Fellows

The Provost’s Teaching Fellows program is designed to strengthen faculty participation in the Faculty Innovation Center, enhance faculty collaboration across disciplinary and institutional boundaries, and support specific faculty-led projects to improve teaching and learning.

From the Chair

Mike Mackert | Stan Richards School of Advertising and Public Relations

I’m so thankful and enthusiastic for the Provost’s Teaching Fellows program is that I feel like this is another of those twists of fate which can lead to great things. I’ve had the chance to meet so many new colleagues and work on different projects, which simply wouldn’t have happened without being a PTF. The other reason I’m excited about this program is that I believe PTFs can be a tremendous force to make UT a better place for students to learn, one less dependent on those twists of fate. Whether that’s helping orient new faculty as they join UT, contributing to curriculum redesign efforts, or helping best practices spread across campus, the work of the PTFs can help ensure the student experience is as consistent and excellent as possible.
