The UK faculty toolkit is a site that supports teaching faculty at the University of Kentucky who are involved in a Faculty Research Group focusing on the transition from High School to UK in the context of our new general education program - the UK Core.
Learn more about teaching UK 101 or 201 and fill out a new instructor online application here.
The UKC prefix allows for faculty to propose a course for the UK Core and to teach it up to two times prior to submitting it for formal approval. We encourage faculty to be "experimental" in their approaches, while also ensuring that the course meets the learning outcomes for UK Core course area as defined by the relevant course template. Read more about this policy and submit an experimental course request form.
The Student Alert referral system allows instructors to notify advisors and/or students of academic concerns. Read more here.
Many high school students take advantage of the University of Kentucky’s rich curricular offerings by enrolling in UK courses while finishing up their high school diplomas. However, this tradition in dual enrollment could be more adequately supported if offered within a formalized dual credit program. The Division of Undergraduate Education encourages UK faculty and college leadership to offer qualified students the opportunity to earn college credit as part of their high school curriculum.
