Tuesday, February 14 | 11:45AM–12:30PM | Houston Ballroom V
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
The Teaching Academy, a professional development program for Johns Hopkins graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, leverages the power of online and face-to-face learning communities to promote the use of evidence-based teaching practices. The presenters will describe how the program's structure supports collaboration among graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, teaching-support staff at Johns Hopkins and other colleges. These collaborations sparked educational transformation across the institution. The presenters will provide initial data documenting the program's impact and engage session participants to consider how they might implement similar strategies and educational technology to foster academic transformation at their own institutions.

Outcomes: Explore how institutions can leverage graduate student professional development to lead academic transformation locally and at other institutions *Explore the Johns Hopkins Teaching Academy framework for preparing future faculty to become 21st-century educators *Discuss how future faculty professional development programs could be implemented at your institution
