Inspired Τeaching & Faculty Professional Development
Talented faculty are at the heart of Athens College. Our goal is to attract, retain and develop inspiring teachers who will help students grow academically, socially, and personally. This requires significant investment to ensure that the College is adapting to rapidly evolving best practices.
Your gift helps provide great teaching by supporting professional development.
These gifts encourage lifelong learning by enabling faculty and staff to attend seminars and conferences, pursue coursework and related research, and seize travel-study opportunities.
The College is building synergies with institutions in Greece and abroad, such as the Arizona State University, the University of Delaware and the Delaware Academy for School Leadership, the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE), the University College London Institute of Education, the National Κapodistrian University of Athens and the University of Peloponnese, to run targeted projects and workshops. Programs organized vary from new teachers’ induction sessions to a 150-hour, two-year lasting Pedagogical Training Program, Training the Trainers and Teachers Training Teachers seminars addressing all teachers’ needs throughout their careers. We also give teachers the opportunity to attend online courses in areas of their interest and tailor-made courses addressing areas for development.
Gifts of any size in support of Inspired Teaching are welcome. These gifts are added to the respective Fund.
