New Faculty Orientation
In February 2014, the Centre for Teaching and Learning will be holding an orientation program for new academic staff members, known as New Faculty Orientation (NFO). The four day event aims to familiarise new teaching staff with UoN’s unique learning environment and provide valuable opportunities for professional development, networking and collegiality.
New Faculty Orientation involves a number of practical workshop sessions, as well as specific information from each faculty and social events. The program is an integral part of CTL’s induction and support of all UoN teaching staff, to enable academics to deliver world-class educational experiences.
The 2014 NFO program will be held at Callaghan campus from 11 -14 February. Topics will include course design and lesson planning, presentation skills, e-teaching technologies, teaching in the blended and online environment, and evaluating your teaching. NFO provides an excellent opportunity for staff to meet new colleagues and establish your own university network for consultation and support.
Teaching Essentials is a one-day program that familiarises teaching academics with the expectations of the teaching role at UoN and our curricular systems. The event will be held twice, on 30 January and 5 February, 2014 and participants can choose which day they attend.
Teaching Essentials will introduce you to the essential information you need to successfully teach at UoN. Topics will include communication systems, the virtual learning environment, teaching spaces and policies, grants and awards, course outlines, grading and assessment.
