Pew FTLC - New Faculty Teaching Institute
The New Faculty Institute is designed for new faculty who are relatively new to teaching. The Institute involves a 1.5 day workshop in August and continues through the fall semester. The hands-on workshop focuses on course and syllabus design, first days of class, active learning strategies, interactive videos and syllabi, and key Blackboard functions such as Grade Center and Virtual Office Hours. During the fall semester Faculty Learning Community, participants continue to develop their teaching by participating in a Mid-semester Interview about Teaching (MIT) and/or peer classroom observation and attend one group meeting during the semester.
