The mission of the UALR Academy for Teaching and Learning Excellence is to foster excellence in teaching and learning through sharing ideas, collaborating, and building a strong community of engaged teachers and learners.

We feel strongly that collectively, we can expand our knowledge base to incorporate new skills, techniques, pedagogies, curriculum innovations, and assignments. By highlighting our successes, we can demonstrate the excellence that is happening right now on campus, and foster more of the same.

We look forward to another exciting year of teaching and learning. Join us at our bimonthly lunch sessions.

Fall 2017:

This semester we will be conducting our Shadow-a-Student program.  This program offers faculty the opportunity to share in a student’s experience of a course in an effort to gain novel perspectives on different classroom approaches, environments, and procedures.  If you are a faculty member or student and are interested, please email us at
