This program provides new faculty in the college a chance to become better equipped for teaching at this university.

 While intended primarily for “rookie” faculty, this program is targeted to all new hires in the College. It consists of a 1.5 day workshop that meets prior to the beginning of the fall semester.

Topics include
  • course design
  • class session planning
  • active learning methods
  • effective questioning strategies
  • microteaching practices
  • implementation approaches
  • planning for success
This program has been a significant success in the past. Most new faculty attend the workshop; moreover, many of these new faculty have continued to participate in subsequent programs and have provided positive feedback regarding their experiences.
