Serving APUS Faculty Members

Faculty Professional Development

APUS faculty are encouraged—and expected—to increase their level of scholarship and/or scholarly practice in their academic fields or disciplines, as well as to advance their teaching proficiency, particularly in the online environment.  To this end, all faculty are required to pursue professional development opportunities guided by the following policies.  Scholarship and scholarly practice are to be recorded in Digital Measures annually for consideration for future opportunities.
