The biggest single thing my department does every year is New Faculty Orientation, which is today. This year we’ve got the biggest crop of new faculty ever, bigger even than last year.

New Faculty Orientation

Xy says we’re very smart to have this event. Despite all the professional development days, her school offers no special support for new teachers.

Of course I always pause to think about the old faculty who are no longer with us. But still, it is pretty cool to see all this fresh young blood coming into the University.

    We do a weeklong series of workshops for new faculty. Basically, it’s our entire fall schedule offered in miniature, in five days.

    Congrats on getting through it today. This is the busiest time of year for us in faculty development–everything ramping back up at the same time.

  2. What are you B, old or new blood?

  3. I’m old blood, Worm. I’ve been here nine years now. But of course, I’m not faculty, and I don’t teach classes.
