New Faculty Sessions
CETL host sessions specifically designed for faculty new to UM. These events are a great opportunity to meet other new faculty as well as learn about resources or topics of interest on campus.
Faculty discussion groups on topics related to teaching and learning.
These pages contain information about things faculty need to know, FAQs, a few important policies, and the policy code conventions.
These pages contain a list of PDF documents related to teaching: student learning, learning objectives, teaching methods, assessment methods; how to develop a teaching portfolio, etc. It also includes information on the Teacher Behavior Checklist (TBC) and how to upload it into Blackboard. The TBC is a great way to get feedback from students on how you are doing while you can still adjust your teaching style.
