Faculty professional development at Towson University is the foundation of transformative innovation and academic success. The Office of Academic Innovation, in collaboration with the Office of Technology Services, the academic colleges, and other units on campus, provides a range of educational and technological support services for faculty and led by faculty.
Our philosophy is that faculty members bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to
the academic enterprise that should be shared, developed, and celebrated. In order
to foster critical thinking and reflection about one’s own teaching practice, the
OAI creates opportunities for risk taking and experimentation that build a culture
of collegiality, trust, and faculty leadership. The end result is more effective teaching
for more effective learning.

The Office of Academic Innovation Teaching Tips videos are released every month in
order to provide information to TU faculty regarding innovative and effective instructional
strategies. These videos feature great tips with animated characters, lively narration,
and hands-on demonstrations.
