New Faculty Orientation – August 21 and August 29, 2013

The Center for Teaching and Learning and the Office of the Provost are pleased to invite you to an orientation for new faculty:  Things You Need to Know to Teach at Queens.

The same program will be offered twice. Wednesday, August 21 (12-2pm), and Thursday, August 29 (3-5pm), President’s Conference Rooms 1 and 2 in Rosenthal Library.

Representatives from around campus will discuss resources and services you need to know about in your new capacity as faculty:

  • Using library resources
  • Accessing instructional technologies
  • Teaching online
  • Reporting attendance and grades
  • Encouraging academic integrity
  • Seeking professional development opportunities
  • Teaching large classes
  • Resources for your students you should know about

Please join us on August 21 or August 29 for information, conversation, and some refreshments.
We encourage you to bring along a colleague: a full-time faculty member, a not-new adjunct, or your departmental chair.  Simply share this email, and ask your colleague to RSVP.

To help us better plan the event, please RSVP at

We prefer to have you join us in person, but if neither date/time works for you, you’re invited to join us virtually. (Webcast information is in the RSVP form above.)

For questions, please contact Rowena Li at or Jean Kelly at
