Passport to Great Teaching is a professional development program that lets you choose which path to travel as you earn teaching certificates. To earn a certificate, attend “core” activities and then complete several “electives” like:

  • Conferences
  • Workshops
  • Faculty Learning Communities
  • Magna Campus Videos
  • Teaching Beyond the Podium Podcasts

Your certificate can be added to your teaching portfolio, CV or LinkedIn profile. University of Florida faculty, staff, TAs, post-docs, and graduate students are all welcome to participate. Begin your passport journey now!

Watch the Passport to Great Teaching overview video to find out more about how the program works. Learn how to register for a certificate, sign up for workshops, and track your miles. For questions, head to our Passport to Great Teaching FAQ page or email Zaina Sheets.

In August 2019, The Passport to Great Teaching program began using Salesforce to track all workshop registration, attendance, and teaching certificates. In order to participate in the program, you must register for a Passport Portal account. This will allow you to choose a certificate, register for qualifying workshops, track your progress, and collaborate with fellow travelers through the discussion board.
