Orientation Series for Faculty
and Long-term Instructional Academic Staff   

Since the fall semester of 2007, the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning has provided an orientation and training series for new faculty and long-term instructional staff.  

The series includes campus presenters who participate and share ideas and expertise with new faculty members.  Topics covered may include:

  • introduction to the campus and faculty support services,
  • student demographics,
  • liberal education initiatives and the liberal arts mission,
  • quality teaching and learning,
  • assessment,
  • and other issues related to new faculty and long-term instructional staff.

For the first time in 2015, the orientation is hybrid with both online and face-to-face sessions. The first session is Wednesday, August 26 from noon to 4.Successive sessions are held on Thursday mornings from 8:15 to 9:45.

Open campus activities for Promoting Excellence in Teaching and Learning

CETL is in the process of planning open campus activities. CETL believes that students and staff are the heart of the UWS campus. Professional and personal development provides the context, and all staff are teachers AND learners in the process. Campus activities will be open to all members of the campus and will incorporate our collaborative work in supporting students towards retention and graduation.

Activities and additional information will be provided during Opening Week (beginning August 25, 2015).
