New Faculty Resources  

The Center for Teaching and Learning is here to ensure the success of all new faculty. We provide robust resources tailored for all faculty new to MSOE, including the following:

    • New Faculty Onboarding: For new full-time faculty, we provide a two-week, in-person onboarding program prior to the start of Fall Semester that includes seminars on university resources, services and policies, as well as opportunities to network and work on preparing for the academic year with the support of the CREATE Institute staff. For adjunct faculty as well as other faculty who join MSOE throughout the school year, we provide an evening of onboarding or one-on-one sessions, depending on the size of the cohort. 
    • New Faculty Mentor Program: All new faculty are matched with a faculty mentor from their respective academic department. The faculty mentor-mentee relationship provides crucial one-on-one guidance and support throughout the first year at MSOE.
    • Teaching at MSOE Canvas Course: This course provides training in designing, building and teaching a course using Canvas. Each module is an individual learning path with resources, insights, tutorials, practice and assessments.
