Ellis University continues its focus on quality by maintaining strict guidelines on the selection, support and development of our faculty members. Most faculty members have previous online teaching experience, and all are trained thoroughly on our platform so they are prepared to create an exceptional online experience for our students.
Our faculty possess strong academic credentials and also bring a wealth of professional experience to the university. All faculty teaching undergraduate courses have a relevant graduate degree, and many hold a Ph.D. or other terminal degree. Approximately sixty-five percent of faculty teaching graduate courses hold a terminal degree, and the remainder hold a relevant non-terminal graduate degree and have been certified by the University’s Chief Academic Officer as well-qualified to teach graduate classes due to exceptional professional expertise, exceptional graduate-level teaching experience, or both.
Several elements are utilized to connect Ellis students to their faculty members, allowing for greater and more frequent communication and availability. Faculty interact with their students regularly to answer questions, participate in classroom discussions, and provide expert guidance on coursework. Our online environment also provides a space for one-on-one faculty assistance as well as an area for faculty-led chats in real time to promote class discussion and student inclusion.
Ellis’s faculty members are our most important contributors to the quality of the student learning experience. As part of our process of continuous improvement of our students’ learning we actively support all our faculty members as they strive to make even greater contributions to the learning and the lives of their students. We do this through regular classroom observation and feedback, and through student, peer, and self review.
