Future Faculty Teaching Fellows

IU Bloomington’s Future Faculty Teaching Fellows (FFTF) program gives doctoral students an opportunity to spend one or two semesters as a half-time faculty member at another IU campus or university. The fellows experience what it’s like to teach and be a faculty member there, preparing them for successful academic careers at similar campuses. Before their teaching assignments begin, fellows participate in the FFTF Summer Institute. Co-sponsored by FACET and the University Graduate School, the three-day institute prepares fellows to teach in different academic environments.

FACET members design and lead the institute, which seeks to:

  • Increase fellows’ familiarity with students at other IU campuses
  • Improve their knowledge of faculty realities at other IU campuses
  • Expand their repertoire of course-design strategies
  • Encourage self-assessment and reflection on teaching
Past Future Faculty Teaching Fellows now teach in tenure-track positions at institutions such as:
  • American University, Cairo, Egypt
