Self-Paced, Online Course:
New Faculty Orientation to Teaching

Are you new to Columbia University, new to teaching, or have taken on a new teaching role? The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) has launched a new self-paced course as a flexible alternative to the CTL’s in-person orientation program for Columbia faculty. Enroll below or scroll down for more details about the course.

What can you expect from the online course?
The CTL provides faculty with an orientation that offers an overview of the teaching and learning context at Columbia, learner-centered and inclusive teaching practices, strategies for engaging all students, and resources available to instructors and learners. The course includes opportunities to engage with other new faculty through discussion, a "Getting Ready to Teach" checklist, tips in preparation for the first day, and video recordings from our Fall 2018 orientation featuring insights from Columbia faculty and students.

How does this differ from the in-person program?
This course is an alternative to the CTL’s in-person New Faculty Orientation to Teaching on Wednesday, August 28, 2019. You can take the course at your own pace, spending less or more time on different modules as you progress through the material. While the online course is the only option for new faculty in Spring 2019, we highly encourage you to join us for the face-to-face version next fall where you will have an opportunity to gather with colleagues for wine, cheese, and peer mentoring. (Stay tuned to our emails for details.)
