Center for Faculty Excellence
Walden’s Lead Faculty members provide support to both College Leadership and faculty members in supporting consistent pedagogical methods and quality instructional outcomes. Lead Faculty are considered the course expert; supporting course content and course delivery concerns. They also mentor instructors as needed. Lead Faculty complete detailed course reviews by completing detailed surveys, as directed by their College Leadership.
The Lead Faculty Community is a site for Lead Faculty to collaborate with each other on best practices for providing assistance to both college leadership and faculty. Job aids and other tools are housed at this site to assist Lead Faculty members in their roles.
New Lead Faculty members may take the Lead Faculty Training Module: Roles and Responsibilities. OTLE hosts quarterly sessions to provide support to new Lead Faculty and to serve as a refresher and venue to share best practices for seasoned Lead Faculty members.
