Connecting Faculty to form GCWS Teaching Teams

This is a searchable database of faculty from member institutions who are actively interested in teaching a course for the consortium in the future or serving as visiting lecturers.  Consortium courses are team-taught. The purpose of the database is to facilitate the process of forming teaching teams.  If you are interested in potentially teaching for GCWS in the future, and you would like to be included in the database, please fill out this form.

Faculty who are eligible to teach GCWS courses must be full time tenured or tenure track faculty from GCWS member institutions or faculty with long term appointments at these institutions. Find out more about GCWS teaching policies.

In addition to faculty who elect to participate in this searchable database, the GCWS is also connected to 900+ instructors from our member institutions and can help to facilitate course development discussions.

“The process of co-teaching with a faculty member from another institution and discipline has given me a new perspective in my field.”
