Attend Our New Faculty Teaching Academy

The New Faculty Teaching Academy is a series of workshops offered to faculty new to the University of Kentucky to assist them in having a successful start with teaching responsibilities at the University of Kentucky. It is sponsored by the Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT) and is intended to serve as a follow-up to New Faculty Orientation. The workshops are designed to introduce participants to issues such as course design, effective teaching strategies, the characteristics of UK students, and the academic culture of the campus. There will be four workshops offered during the Fall 2012 semester detailed below. For information regarding all CELT workshops for the upcoming semester please visit our Events page.

Who Are Our Students? This one-hour workshop, co-sponsored with the Office for First Generation Initiatives, focuses on the students at UK. What do we assume to be true about our students? What teaching strategies would be most effective in "decoding" your discipline? What is it like to be a first generation student? What are some trends at UK regarding student recruitment? The workshop will include advice from faculty colleagues, UK students, and the Director for First Generation Initiatives. Wednesday, September 5 3:00 - 4:00 pm Niles Gallery, Lucille Little Fine Arts Library.

Do I Have To Do the Reading? Thursday, September 27 3:30 - 4:30 pm Niles Gallery, Lucille Little Fine Arts Library.
