All faculty new to teaching at UCI are invited to participate in the New Faculty Teaching Academy (NFTA).  The 2019 Academy will be held September 10th and 11th, 9 am – 4:00 pm in AIRB 1030. Registration will open in late July.

Designed as a series of integrated modules, participants can sign-up for the number of modules that they feel will best suit their needs.

The Academy is designed specifically for new professors with limited teaching experience; however, new faculty with more experience who are still interested are more than welcome to participate.

Co-sponsored by the Office of Academic Personnel and facilitated by the Division of Teaching Excellence and Innovation, the Academy is also designed to be practical and hands-on. Faculty have the option of designing a complete syllabus.

Participants receive a Certificate of Participation that can be added to their tenure and promotion files.  For more information, contact Dr. Andrea Aebersold at or contact
