New Faculty Learning Community Details

The honeymoon is over. Classes have started, students are digging into assignments, the first exam has been passed back, an internal research proposal is due, students have questions and issues, and there are requirements for tenure and promotion. How do you do it all? How do you do it well? How do you find balance between professional and personal responsibilities? What other issues do you have? All this and more is discussed and supported in the New Faculty Learning Community. The group meets once a month for 1.5 hours throughout the academic year. An action plan for success will be created — a faculty honorarium/additional compensation award of $300 is available for participants who actively participate throughout the seminar and put their plan into action.

The New Faculty Learning Community meets monthly on Fridays from 1–2:30 p.m. via Zoom for a synchronous session.  Readings, handouts, and resources are accessed for asynchronously learning through the Canvas learning management system.

Meeting dates are as follows:

  • September 18, 2020
  • October 2, 2020 (*At this session we will run the Internal Research Award Writing Workshop).
  • November 13, 2020
