The K. Patricia Cross Academy
For Faculty • For Free • For the Future of Higher Education
The K. Patricia Cross Academy was founded by Elizabeth Barkley and Claire Major and named to celebrate and preserve the legacy of K. Patricia Cross. A non-profit program under the fiscal sponsorship of The Social Good Fund, it is supported entirely by sales of Engaged Teaching: A Handbook for College Faculty and donations from a small group of donors, including the founders. The Academy is dedicated to supporting college faculty by offering free instructional videos and downloadable resources that clearly outline how to:1
Implement high-impact, evidence-based teaching techniques that improve students' learning; and2
Document student learning in ways that provide the information teachers need to improve their teaching as well as assist them in their efforts for hiring, tenure, and promotion.
