The Center for Teaching
Excellence will also offer continued opportunities throughout the academic year
for you to meet your colleagues and discuss with them issues and topics related
to teaching, scholarship and service. More information about these meetings will
be presented at the orientation.
Check with your department
office to see if there is important information and/or documents waiting for
you. You should contact your chair or
department representative early in the summer for copies of the syllabi of
record for each course you are assigned to teach.
Ask your department chair or
department secretary/administrative assistant about computer equipment and keys
for your use.
Do not hesitate to call or
email me with any questions you have. We are certainly looking forward to meeting
