Created in 2014, the Global Teaching Academy recognizes and celebrates exceptional teaching in an international context. Since its inception, the Academy has welcomed some two dozen colleagues and recognized their efforts in internationalizing Auburn University’s curricula and student experiences. The Office of International Programs hosted an induction ceremony to honor the four newest members of the Academy on March 26.

The Global Teaching Academy 2019 class includes faculty members Paul Harris, professor and department chair for the Department of Political Science in the College of Liberal Arts; Wayde Morse, associate professor in the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences; Martin O’Neill, professor and department head for Nutrition, Dietetics and Hospitality Management in the College of Human Sciences; and Tiffany Sippial, director of Honors College and associate professor of History in the College of Liberal Arts.

These four faculty members were selected for their accomplishments in international research and teaching and their commitment to internationalizing Auburn’s curriculum in their respective areas of study. As members of the Academy, the faculty will play an essential role in Auburn’s biannual International Perspectives on University Teaching and Learning Symposium and will strive to uphold the goals of the Academy:

  • Recognize our peers for their interest and efforts in globalizing Auburn's curriculum.
  • Facilitate international course offerings on campus to complement the recent growth of study abroad courses and exchange programs offered overseas.
  • Create a supportive, interdisciplinary environment for students to internationalize their academic programs.
  • Create an academic international certificate.
  • Induct our recognized academy members into Phi Beta Delta, the honor society for international scholars.
