First Year Faculty
Orchestrating a productive balance between research, teaching, service and outreach can be daunting for new faculty. These resources will help you navigate your first few years of teaching and learning at Auburn University and include crafting lessons, integrating teaching and research, and connecting with colleagues in structured programs designed to promote faculty success.
Auburn’s commitment to excellent teaching is evidenced by our high-achieving students, our state-of-the-art classroom facilities and our dedicated support units across campus. Here at the Biggio Center, we offer teaching feedback services, professional development programming, on-demand support, and interdisciplinary collaboration for all faculty at each career stage.
Most graduate programs focus on professional development related to research. At the Biggio Center, GTAs participate in teaching and learning development that distinguishes them from other applicants in higher education’s competitive job and grant markets.
Transitioning from a faculty member into an administrative role comes with many questions. The Biggio Center supports this unique transition by providing ongoing support to department leaders by enhancing professional development opportunities and engaging Auburn’s academic leaders in a constructive dialogue designed to support best practices relative to the institution strategic initiatives.
