About Us

The Teaching Professor was founded in 1987 with a simple goal in mind: to create a newsletter that helps college faculty improve their teaching, share best practices, and stay current on the latest pedagogical research.

Since that time, The Teaching Professor has become a trusted guide for tens of thousands of educators who are committed to creating a better learning environment. The new Teaching Professor, launched in August 2018, reflects the changing needs of today’s college faculty and the students they teach. This new, fully online version includes everything readers have loved about The Teaching Professor for so many years—great articles and practical, evidence-based insights—but it also contains many new features and formats that will make it an even more indispensable resource.

SIPA and APEX award winnerEach week readers can expect thought-provoking and actionable advice on a wealth of critical topics, including

  • improving student learning;
  • designing effective activities and assignments;
  • energizing and reinspiring yourself in mid-career;
  • promoting academic integrity;
  • responding to course evaluations and feedback;
  • dealing with difficult students; and
  • getting students to read what’s assigned.

In short, The Teaching Professor is better than ever and will quickly become the go-to resource for inspiration and advice on better teaching and learning, regardless of discipline or course format. We look forward to continuing to serve the higher ed community with this all-new publication that provides more content and more depth on the topics that matter most.
