New Faculty Orientation
Details for NFO 2021
New Faculty Orientation sessions ran from August 9-10, 2021, from 8am-5pm. Additional information regarding specific times for sessions appears on our schedule.
New Faculty Orientation sessions were offered via distance this year through Zoom, due to building restrictions and reduced room capacities. Our next offering for NFO will be in August 2022, so check back for updates! Questions about this series may be directed to our Program Coordinator Luis Chavez (firstname.lastname@example.org | (907) 786-4644).
During NFO and throughout the year, CAFE provides faculty development opportunities designed to help you make the best possible use of key resources that support teaching, learning, and student success. Good teaching is valued at UAA, and many members of the UAA community recognize that faculty development is the process by which faculty members go from being “content experts” to highly skilled, reflective educators who rely on evidence-based practices to create the transformative teaching and learning experiences. Whether you become involved in one of our faculty learning communities (FLCs), develop a scholarly teaching project in our Scholarship of Teaching and Learning program (Making Learning Visible), or attend one of the many workshops available to help you develop your teaching skills and strategies, we think you’ll see why so many faculty members participate in the development opportunities. In addition to the specific things we offer, we're an exceptionally collaborative center, working with offices and professionals across the institution. If you have a question or need support, don't hesitate to contact us! If we don't have the answer, we'll be happy to guide you toward resources and forms of support located in other offices on campus.
