Preparing Future Faculty
The Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) Program, coordinated by the Biggio Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, was modeled after the national PFF movement. The program was launched at Auburn University in 2005. The goal is to prepare future faculty to meet the challenges of the 21st century by increasing Auburn University graduate student readiness to assume faculty roles, helping graduate students understand the expectations and functional realities of faculty life, developing wider institutional and personal networks, and making graduate study even more responsive to disciplinary and professional needs.
Coursework: PFF students enroll in a three-credit course. The course meets every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30 – 4:45pm.
Seminars: PFF students are required to attend or assist at three Biggio Center seminars during the year that relate to teaching and learning in higher education.
Applications: To apply for a Spring 2017 course, the PFF application requires a letter of interest as well as a signature from the applicant’s major professor. The PFF application will be open in November 2016. For more information, email Lindsay Doukopoulos.
