Teaching Orientations

Goals of the Health Sciences Teaching Academy

Through a series of faculty development activities, the HSTA will foster effective teaching and learning in the health sciences by:

  • providing opportunities to discuss teaching and learning with colleagues and exemplary instructors
  • deepening new faculty members’ understanding of how students learn
  • demonstrating strategies new faculty can use in various teaching contexts
  • developing an interdisciplinary cohort of faculty engaged in teaching, and
  • increasing new faculty members’ access to resources and support for effective teaching and mentoring.

To welcome new instructors to the University and help prepare them for their first teaching assignments at U-M, CRLT will be offering orientations for new faculty and new GSIs in the last week of August. These programs are all designed to help new instructors meet colleagues from across the campus, learn about the resources available for teaching, and hit the ground running when the teaching term begins. Our work with U-M instructors has convinced us that when teaching is going well, other aspects of faculty or GSI work life are more likely to fall into place. So we take great care to design orientations that make the best possible use of participants' time and cover the topics most salient to getting a good start in the classroom, lab, or studio.

All of us at CRLT are excited to welcome new instructors to campus and to help you get the tools you need to succeed. We look forward to meeting you! Read more »
