The Center for the Advancement of Teaching is one of many offices involved in New Faculty Orientation. New Faculty Orientation runs across three days and the sessions will introduce you to campus folkways and various sources of support for your vital research/creative work and teaching. You will also learn more about our close-knit WFU community; meet new and veteran faculty and administrative colleagues; and, if experience is any guide, begin to develop new friendships.
Each fall, the Center for the Advancement of Teaching offers a “boot camp” style teaching series for new graduate students designed to help prepare them to teach. The event lasts for 1.5 days. Participants will take part in a variety of activities, such as workshops, a panel session, and microteaching. For Fall 2020, the Boot Camp is scheduled on Tuesday, August 18 from 8:30-5:00 and Wednesday, August 19 from 9:00-12:30.
