More information

Please join us at the first annual New Faculty Teaching Engagement on Wednesday, November 7th at the Luskin Conference Center. 

Register by Friday, November 2nd!

Our program welcomes all faculty and lecturers new to UCLA, whether they have teaching experience elsewhere, teaching experience as a graduate student only, or very limited teaching experience.

The goal of the program is to better prepare new faculty and lecturers to teach at UCLA. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on how they will develop and/or modify courses they are appointed to teach at UCLA. Participants will be introduced to a “toolkit” of best teaching practices to help them create inclusive classrooms that will engage students and optimize learning. Participants will also be introduced to the demographics of UCLA students and aspects of teaching at UCLA, as they may differ from those at other institutions.

We would love for you to join us to discuss teaching at UCLA, and we hope that you will find the NFTE as “nifty” as we do.
