The WSU Teaching Academy is made up of educators across the system who support its goals to promote a university culture that values, supports, and rewards excellence in teaching and the scholarship of teaching. They drive implementation of academic goals that elevate the quality of educational program processes and outcomes, and student achievement. Members support models of teaching and learning that foster deep and lasting understanding by learners. And, they facilitate the creation of mindsets and practices of students and faculty that drive self-motivated lifelong learning. The academy hosts each year a TEACHxWSU event focused on a special topic of interest and use to faculty and teaching graduate students. It also has a book club where teachers can delve into a shared book, discuss topics from it, and learn together.
