New Faculty Academy: Building Your T&P File from Day One

Thursday, November 11, 2021
3:00 PM - 4:15 PM


Center for Teaching Excellence

Thomas Cooper Library, Room L511


Time flies when you’re having fun—and also when your tenure clock starts ticking. You earned your position as a faculty member by being accomplished at managing long-term projects and goals, but this most critical professional deadline is one that requires careful planning. This workshop, geared primarily towards new faculty starting their probationary periods, will provide concrete suggestions for planning your work, staying on track with those plans, and building your tenure file along the way.


** Registration Procedures Update **

In order for attendees to personally track their current registrations and attendance at certificate of completion workshops and events, the Center for Teaching Excellence requires that all registrants create an account in our registration system and login to register for all workshops.


If you have an existing training account with the Division of Human Resources, Office of Organizational and Professional Development, you do not need to create an account. You can login using your HR training username and password. By logging in to register for CTE events, your complete training record for both CTE and HR trainings will be available with a single account and login.


Participants must attend a workshop in its entirety to receive credit for the workshop in their training records. Late arrival and/or early exit from a workshop invalidates receiving credit. If technology issues require rescheduling of a workshop, participants must attend the workshop at the rescheduled time to receive credit. These policies apply to all CTE workshops/events, including workshops that qualify as requirements/electives for a certificate of completion.
