University of Iowa

Academy events include

  • a structured series of workshops on topics including course design, assessment, and teaching portfolio development.
  • networking events with other early-career, tenure-track faculty members and with tenured faculty mentors.

Center for Teaching staff members offer one-on-one consultation on any topic related to teaching and learning and can assist with observations, gathering midterm student feedback, and more.


Student Instructional Technology Assistants (SITAs) provide personalized support for the implementation of teaching technologies. SITAs are available to help each Academy member leverage teaching technologies (such as ICON) to support efficient, effective teaching. 


Each Academy cohort serves as a community whose members provide one another with support, accountability, and feedback.
