Excellence in Teaching
Engaging the entire Ursuline community, the faculty-led Excellence in Teaching initiative has examined the core skills, knowledge, and habits of mind and heart of effective teaching to produce a definition of teaching excellence for Ursuline Academy of Dallas. In its preparation, that definition has also considered the core values of Ursuline education and the writings of St. Angela Merici. The resulting Pillars of Teaching Excellence offers a foundation for all Ursuline initiatives, including the development of a professional learning framework for faculty.
