New Faculty Orientation

Teaching & Advising Undergraduates

Information for Fall 2021

Please indicate your attendance no later than Friday September 10 using the online RSVP form.

Are you teaching this fall quarter and adapting a class you taught elsewhere or creating an entirely new course?  If so you may be interested in signing up for a short online Arts and Sciences Fall Planning Workshop for quick tips. The workshop does not replace the more in-depth orientation on Sept. 17, but is designed for instructors of Fall Quarter 2021 classes who may be making decisions about syllabus structure before Sept. 17. Workshop focus will be on how to plan a course in the context of Northwestern and Weinberg College policies and culture including important fall academic calendar deadlines and student academic integrity policy. Those who sign up may simply attend the first 30 minutes for essential information, or stay the full hour for more engagement/discussion. Sessions will take place on Zoom at 1:30PM CST; choose from Thursday September 2, Wednesday September 8, or Friday September 10 by visiting the workshop RSVP form.
