The 2014 New Faculty Teaching Institute (NFTI) will be held Wednesday August 6- Friday August 8.
Welcome to all new faculty! Each day began with a light continental breakfast with lunch catered and provided by the Office of the Provost.
Here you will find the New Faculty Teaching Institute Syllabus 2014 which contains your schedule and Pre-Institute Assignments.
The New Faculty Teaching Institute is organized around four integrated themes that reflect the value provided to participants. Primarily, there is a focus on the importance of active-engaged learning as it is implemented through a balance of the Three Teaching Types. With this primary focus, faculty will be guided to discover the critical meaning and professional value in their role as teacher and mentor to their students. As participants in the NFTI are provided with realistic perspectives regarding students and classroom management, the use of reflective practice, as a means of considering ways to continuously improve one’s professional practice both individually and with other faculty, is reinforced. This, in turn, leads to both professional growth and increased self-confidence.
