The Future Faculty Program trains Graduate Teaching Assistants in techniques for active and collaborative learning in large enrollment (350 students) lectures of freshman Biology.
The Future Faculty graduate student works along side faculty skilled in these techniques, as well as faculty still learning how to implement them.
2013-2014 Future Faculty Ph.D. Graduate Student, Marleshia Hall, was a 2002 UA-HHMI Undergraduate Researcher from Stillman College

- Opportunity is given to teach a freshman learning community and intern with an experienced freshman majors biology teacher.
- Through our graduate student mentoring program, Teaching Advancement Program (TAP), they share their experiences with other Graduate Teaching Assistants and receive feed back from students and faculty for improvements in delivery of these methods.
- Based on discussions of "Entering Mentoring" in TAP, the graduate student applies what they have learned through a mentoring role in the undergraduate research program.
- The Future Faculty graduate student presents lectures/discussions/activities in fresman biology and receives critiques to improve effectiveness.
