Teaching Conversations/New Faculty Institute 2014-2015 – Gainesville Campus, Spring Meeting #3

Gainesville Campus, Nesbitt 5105

We invite you to join the 2014-2015 Teaching Conversations/New Faculty Institute (NFI) , a series of six conversational sessions that take place throughout the academic year. All seasoned and new faculty/teaching staff are invited. We’ll provide cookies & drinks; you bring your good ideas. See fall plan and agenda below for more details.

This year, four of the NFI meetings will be held in conjunction with Teaching Conversations: How Learning Works. These groups will meet together — same place and time – see below. To stimulate discussion, we’ll use chapters from How Learning Works: Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching. (Please contact CTLL if you do not have a copy of the book. The chapters covered in Fall Meeting #1 are available in D2L. The book will also be on reserve in the libraries.) One of the most beneficial aspects of these Teaching Conversations will be the camaraderie of sharing our experiences and our best ideas from our classroom practices.

CERTIFICATES

If you participate in the NFI program, you can garner two certificates to include in your promotion and tenure portfolio: New Faculty Institute Certificate and Teaching Academy Certificate (the culmination of those Teaching Conversations).

In order to earn these certificates, you must

  1. Attend meetings on your campus (see below). If your schedule does not allow you to be at the meetings, you can write at least 250 words for each chapter in our online discussions in eLearning.
  2. Contribute to online discussions for NFI
  3. Submit a reflective analysis in April/May 2015
    a. For the New Faculty Institute Certificate: Write a three-page summary statement that is a first draft of a summary document required in the promotion and tenure portfolio. This statement outlines your philosophy, goals, progress, and plans related to teaching, research, and service.
    b. For the Teaching Academy Certificate: Write a two-page summary outlining the relevance of How Learning Works to your pedagogy.

In short, the NFI introduces newly-hired faculty to the UNG missions of “quality education, service, inquiry and creativity.” The NFI facilitates acclimation to the institution and promotes teaching excellence and professional development.

We look forward to seeing you.

Teaching Conversations/New Faculty Institute 2014-2015 – Gainesville Campus, Spring Meeting #2

Gainesville Campus, Nesbitt 5105

We invite you to join the 2014-2015 Teaching Conversations/New Faculty Institute (NFI) , a series of six conversational sessions that take place throughout the academic year. All seasoned and new faculty/teaching staff are invited. We’ll provide cookies & drinks; you bring your good ideas. See fall plan and agenda below for more details.

This year, four of the NFI meetings will be held in conjunction with Teaching Conversations: How Learning Works. These groups will meet together — same place and time – see below. To stimulate discussion, we’ll use chapters from How Learning Works: Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching. (Please contact CTLL if you do not have a copy of the book. The chapters covered in Fall Meeting #1 are available in D2L. The book will also be on reserve in the libraries.) One of the most beneficial aspects of these Teaching Conversations will be the camaraderie of sharing our experiences and our best ideas from our classroom practices.

CERTIFICATES

If you participate in the NFI program, you can garner two certificates to include in your promotion and tenure portfolio: New Faculty Institute Certificate and Teaching Academy Certificate (the culmination of those Teaching Conversations).

In order to earn these certificates, you must

  1. Attend meetings on your campus (see below). If your schedule does not allow you to be at the meetings, you can write at least 250 words for each chapter in our online discussions in eLearning.
  2. Contribute to online discussions for NFI
  3. Submit a reflective analysis in April/May 2015
    a. For the New Faculty Institute Certificate: Write a three-page summary statement that is a first draft of a summary document required in the promotion and tenure portfolio. This statement outlines your philosophy, goals, progress, and plans related to teaching, research, and service.
