Pedagogies for Inclusive Excellence (PIE) banner showing pie chart

We have organized our faculty development curriculum around three main curricular components — foundational knowledge, specialized knowledge and peer learning community — which we refer to as Slices of Pedagogies for Inclusive Excellence (PIE). All of our certificates consist of our Slices of PIE. The PIE Slices support faculty as they build community, expand upon their teaching foundations, engage in critical practice and reflect upon their personal and professional growth. Once faculty participate and complete all three courses — Slices of PIE — they will receive a certificate on a theme related to PIE. 

The three slices of PIE include:

Foundational Teaching Skills

Development, through a series of workshops or an institute.

Specialized Knowledge 

Development, through a deep dive into the discipline with faculty experts.

Peer Learning Communities

A semester-long engagement in reflective teaching practice with faculty peers.
