The Purdue University Teaching Academy welcomed Jeffrey Rhoads, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering as a new member.

The Teaching Academy was developed in 1996 to provide a means to elevate teaching and learning at Purdue, and to recognize outstanding faculty and staff who contribute to the learning environment. The first induction ceremony was in 1997. Since that time, more than 200 faculty and instructors have been recognized and inducted into the Teaching Academy.

Working closely with the Center for Instructional Excellence (CIE), the Teaching Academy also serves as a cadre of experienced teachers and educators that can be a resource to new teaching faculty or faculty who have an interest in learning or trying different techniques used by academy members. The Teaching Academy website will be expanded to provide points of contact for any of the members of the Teaching Academy who can serve as mentors, advisors or experienced guides for other faculty at the University.
