Part-time Faculty Orientation (synchronous), January 9, 3–4:30pm

To welcome new adjuncts to DU, we’re holding a brief, online orientation. Although most adjuncts learn important policies and expectations from their departments and colleges, this orientation offers a connection to resources at the campus level, as well as a chance to connect with faculty in similar roles.

Revisiting or Writing your Teaching Philosophy, AAC 340, February 9, 11–12:30pm

A teaching philosophy can be a useful tool beyond the academic job search or review process (although it’s also helpful for those). Come to this workshop to explore your teaching values now, and practice providing compelling evidence of how these values show up in your classes. The event is open to all faculty and graduate students. Please bring something to write with (paper/laptop, etc.).
