OIP Seeks Nominations for the Global Teaching Academy

The Office of International Programs is soliciting nominations for faculty members to join the Global Teaching Academy.

Created in 2014, the Global Teaching Academy recognizes and celebrates exceptional teaching in an international context. Since inception, the Academy has welcomed some two dozen colleagues and recognized their efforts in internationalizing our curricula and our students.

The goals of the Academy are to:

  • Recognize our peers for their interest and efforts in globalizing Auburn's curriculum
  • Facilitate international course offerings on campus to complement the recent growth of study abroad courses and exchange programs offered overseas
  • Create a supportive, interdisciplinary environment for students to internationalize their academic programs
  • Create an academic international certificate
  • Induct our recognized academy members into Phi Beta Delta, the honor society for international scholars

Each year the Academy adds five to six faculty, recognized for their international teaching, and these faculty help lead Auburn's efforts in internationalization of the curriculum. In addition to these overarching goals, in summer of 2018 the Global Teaching Academy will assist the Office of International Programs in running a symposium on international teaching and learning.

This call for nominations seeks applicants for the 2017-18 academic year. Tenure-track faculty on Auburn’s main campus may submit a short CV highlighting their teaching of international content, either on campus or overseas. Nominations and short CVs (Word or PDF files) may be sent to Jenn Mason, director of international initiatives, at The deadline for nominations is Oct. 31.
