Attention: Helpful and rich conversations happening inside!

On Thursday September 10th it was our pleasure to co-sponsor a New Faculty Orientation with the Dartmouth Center for the Advancement of Learning (DCAL).  The event focused around teaching and learning here at Dartmouth.  Together with President Hanlon, an amazing group of librarians, and a fantastic panel of "not so new" Dartmouth faculty, we began conversations ranging from course design, student engagement and grading policies to time management techniques.

As everyone has gotten busy settling in, we encourage you to remember how important it is to keep these conversations active, connecting with colleagues and resources that can help and inspire.

We want to keep this great dialog going.  To that end, please consider this term's New Faculty Luncheons. Focused on helping new faculty jump start their teaching program, these lunchtime sessions will provide opportunities to share concerns and successes and ask questions regarding teaching, student learning and instructional technology.
