The role of a faculty member is a complex, multidimensional one that requires participation in scholarly/research endeavors, clinical practice, teaching and service. Duke University is known as an exceptional research institution, and its faculty are leading cutting-edge initiatives to transform the practice of health care. Enhanced preparation of faculty for our roles as teachers is a vital part of that mission.
As teachers, faculty are in the pivotal position of having a tremendous influence on the future development of their professions. Therefore the vital importance of pursuing excellence in our educational offerings cannot be overstated.
The website is considered to be a “living” resource that will change continually and to which each faculty member may contribute ideas, experiences, questions, resources, and so on. It is intended that this website and the many resources it offers will help and encourage each faculty member to create effective and enriching teaching experiences, so that our learners will imbibe the best of what we have to offer and so that Duke University will be as well known for its excellence and innovation in teaching as it is for its leadership in research and clinical practice.
