UTSA Academy of Distinguished Teaching Scholars

Purpose

The Academy of Distinguished Teaching Scholars was established in 2012 to honor and reward a select group of outstanding faculty who exemplify excellence in teaching; to foster a culture of exceptional teaching and learning practices at UTSA; and to create a collective of faculty advocates for teaching excellence who can serve as resources to their colleagues.

Responsibilities

The Academy is charged with providing institutional leadership and guidance for excellent teaching at UTSA through activities such as mentoring new faculty or developing seminars on teaching excellence; and with providing guidance and feedback for Faculty Center programs and initiatives related to teaching and learning. The Academy is governed by a 10-member Instructional Advisory Board, which additionally is charged with providing advice and guidance to the Provost on matters related to teaching and learning across the University.
