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 http://bit.ly/RSVPFacultyOrientationF13.

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 rowena.li@qc.cuny.edu or Jean Kelly at jean.kelly@qc.cuny.edu.
