Seminar on Teaching for New Faculty
Co-sponsored by the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning and the Office of Faculty Affairs
Contact John Whitney by email or at 502.852.7626.
About the Seminar
For the past several decades, much has been uncovered with regard to how we learn, yet most faculty receive little pedagogical training. This yearlong cohort program is designed to jump-start new faculty members’ teaching careers by providing a rich foundation in evidence-based teaching strategies and how to promote inclusion and equity in the classroom.
The Seminar on Teaching for New Faculty-now in its eighth year-is a cross-disciplinary learning community designed to offer a select group of junior faculty a supportive, collegial atmosphere in which to explore and apply the findings of learning theory in their teaching at UofL. A cohort of 12-18 participants will meet seven times during the academic year. Each session will be 3 hours in length and will be offered in a face-to-face format.
