Teaching in Honors
This page provides more information for faculty members interested in teaching honors courses for the first time and veteran faculty members in EKU Honors.
EKU Honors courses are typically taught by faculty as part of their normal teaching load. Faculty members who wish to teach in the honors program should first approach their department chair to secure departmental support for their work in honors instruction.
Each May on the Tuesday following the spring commencement ceremony, the Honors Program hosts a faculty workshop for those interested in teaching honors courses.
