MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Northern Michigan University's Center for Teaching and Learning held a panel discussion Friday for new faculty members.
First and second year faculty members were invited to come to the discussion to help get them acclimated to campus. The panel had NMU instructors who have been on campus for three to five years. Those attending discussed different strategies for class management, grading, and getting research together.
“We don't have a lot of new faculty this year, so if they're new they might be in a department with a bunch of veteran faculty, and it's nice to be able to get them out so they can meet their fellow new faculty, get some shared experiences, and network in that way, as well as learning about perspectives from other departments and other faculty who they don't see every day,” said Matt Smock, Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning.
Panels like this are held twice a semester with the next one in November.
