New Faculty Institute
The New Faculty Institute (NFI), a Center for Academic Excellence initiative, seeks to provide new faculty with resources and activities that promote their teaching and institutional agency.
Each year, new faculty are included in a yearlong community of teaching and learning designed to strengthen the link between faculty and student success.
Activities will engage and orient participants in CSM values and familiarize them with its students, programs, and resources.
- Promote student-centered pedagogy
- Increase new faculty's sense of institutional agency
- Provide training to effectively use relevant technology (smart classrooms, learning management systems (LMS's), and social media)
- Enhance cross-disciplinary dialogue and promote collaboration
