Center for Faculty Excellence
The Center for Faculty Excellence is the University’s lead resource for teaching and learning support for faculty, staff, and graduate students. The CFE provides professional development workshops, consultations, web resources, learning communities, and more—all designed to help those involved in teaching to create an engaged and articulate learning experience for all BGSU students.
August Updates in the CFE
New Faculty Orientation, August 10th
All new Full-Time Faculty are required to attend the New Faculty Orientation (NFO) program as part of their onboarding with the university. This university-level program is meant for all newly hired faculty of all ranks and tracks from both Main and Firelands campus. This event complements any orientation programming offered by your unit, and you are highly encouraged to engage in both.
Join a Learning Community or Book Club!
Each academic year, the Center for Faculty Excellence works with our Faculty Associates to develop and deliver innovative and timely Learning Communities. The CFE Learning Communities are available to any member of the BGSU teaching community. Learning Communities (LCs) are groups of six to ten instructors who meet regularly to work together in an active, collaborative program for an extended period of time, to create connections and solve problems.
The Center for Faculty Excellence is proud to host book clubs that allow instrucors in the BGSU teaching community to engage in interdisciplinary discussions with colleagues around books on the scholarship of teaching and learning.

BGSU full-time faculty members have the opportunity to participate in ACUE’s comprehensive course on Effective Teaching Practices. This 25-week course prepares faculty in evidence-based teaching practices proven through independently-validated research to improve student achievement and close equity gaps.
