Educator Development

What We're Working On

The Educator Development team is responsible for developing and supporting a peer-observation protocol, coaching, and mentorship programs. This team will partner with the educational Programming and Events team and the Awards and Recognition team as appropriate to secure faculty to serve in these roles.


LEAPS encourages faculty to participate in the Professional Development Coaching program offered through the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning.
