Preparing Future Faculty Programs & Services

The PFF Certificate in College Teaching: This is our flagship program. The PFF Certificate helps you develop pedagogical knowledge and skills for teaching in post-secondary settings. It also helps you develop a robust teaching portfolio that can serve you in your job search and beyond.

Sessions: We offer many sessions each semester. Our sessions cover teaching and learning theory, practice, and design. All sessions are open to CGU students, alumni, faculty, and staff, as well as to the 7Cs community.

Personalized Consultations & Appointments: Do you need help with your teaching? Your syllabus? Your lesson plan? Your rubric? Your teaching portfolio? Even if you are not working toward the PFF Certificate, our consultation services are always open to you. The PFF consultation system is free to all CGU students, alumni, faculty, and staff.  And you can meet with a PFF Fellow in-person, via Zoom, or via our e-mail review system. Upload teaching related documents such as lesson plans, syllabi, etc. for review by a PFF Fellow.

If you are:
1. Preparing for a career in teaching in academic settings or outside of academia and want to build a strong portfolio of teaching tools.
