New Faculty Programs

As a part of our New Faculty Orientation program, The Center for Teaching and Learning hosts a series of events for new faculty throughout the year. These events are intended to follow up the Orientation program by providing you with information as it is needed during the fall and spring semesters.


Fall 2019 

Digital Measures Workshop

Friday, September 6, 2019 | 3:00-4:30 pm | Drinko Library 349

In this workshop, you will begin creating your planning page and annual report by entering your professional activities into Digital Measures. Before attending, we need you to prepare by doing the following:

  1. Login to Digital Measures a few days prior to our meeting. (Login through myMU, using the same credentials you use to login to PCs on campus.) If you cannot log in, contact us by Friday, August 30th so we can ensure that you have access when we meet.
  2. Bring a paper and/or digital copy of your vita with you. There will be a small window of time that you can spend populating Digital Measures.

Accelerating Research Productivity

Friday, October 11, 2019 & Friday, November 15, 2019 | 3:00-4:30 pm | CTL Teaching Commons (Old Main 109)

New faculty often struggle to jumpstart their own lines of research and labs. This is often complicated by the desire to publish and present research during their first two or three years while also teaching full-time. The key is to develop new and effective practices for a new environment. These sessions are designed to provide new faculty with information about resources and research services on campus to help jumpstart their research productivity. These sessions will discuss information such as Marshall’s institutional review board (ORI), incorporating undergraduate and graduate students into research, working on grants, working with outside agencies, starting your own lab, writing abstracts, choosing appropriate venues for presentations and publications, and how to get started in both of these areas.

Registration will be available at a later date.


Technology Round-Up

Friday, December 6, 2019 | 3:00-4:30 pm | Drinko Library 349

As the title suggests, this session will focus on technology. Participants will have opportunities to ask questions, share tips and tricks, review grade submission procedures, and work on their annual reports. This session is open to all faculty, with priority registration given to the new faculty group.

Registration will be available at a later date.
