Candidates will begin Baker Academy by completing two weeks of online training in best practice instructional strategies. After these two weeks, candidates will demonstrate instructional strategies in a face-to-face presentation. Upon successful completion of weeks one, two and three, selected candidates will be invited to complete week four of Baker Academy. Week four will consist of a weeklong online orientation to Baker University. This orientation will focus on policies, procedures, resources, and Baker University history.

Selection of Current Faculty for Other Modalities

If current faculty members are interested in teaching in a new modality, faculty should contact the assistant director of Learning Services. The assistant director of Learning Services will review the faculty member’s teaching experience and past student and peer evaluations. Selected faculty candidates will then be invited to participate in a selection process and a course observation experience.

Once all steps of faculty review are completed, selected faculty members are eligible to be offered teaching opportunities in the appropriate modality on a course-by-course basis as needed for Baker’s various programs.
