Faculty orientation, held twice annually, is not only an opportunity for new faculty to learn a little more about the university's processes, procedures and resources, but it's also a great way to meet other faculty members. These colleagues may serve as future collaborators or simply as additional support as you work to achieve your goals.
Twice a year, deans will receive a letter from the Provost requesting that they submit names of new faculty members. Those faculty who are identified will then receive an invitation to register for a specific orientation session.
In addition to faculty orientation, the Center for Teaching Excellence offers a variety of useful tools and resources including:
- "The First 100 Days" - A manual that addresses immediate questions.
- Syllabus Templates - Calendar templates and course outline templates to prepare faculty members for the classroom.
- Teaching Technology Assistance - Classes dedicated to helping faculty become familiar with Blackboard and other teaching technology.
