The New Faculty Teaching Engagement (NFTE) program is an annual orientation that is focused on teaching. It 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 be introduced to student-centered teaching practices to help them create inclusive classrooms that will engage students and optimize learning. They will also be presented with 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.
