DCAL has prepared a site-within-the-site especially designed to make lots of information available to new faculty members. Please be sure to check out the Workshops and Seminars page as well, which list events for all faculty.
If you are a new faculty member and you were unable to attend the New Faculty Dinner hosted by DCAL, please stop by 102 Baker and pick up your free copy of McKeachie's Teaching Tips: Strategies, Research, and Theory for College and University Teachers. We also have additional handouts from other support centers on campus.
New Faculty Dinner
We have set a tentative date of October 5, 2006 for our new faculty dinner. This is an opportunity for incoming faculty to meet the support staff available to assist you with your teaching at Dartmouth. Invitations will be sent to new faculty in the fall. Please save the date.
New Faculty Luncheon
We will have a new series of luncheons scheduled beginning in the Fall of '06. Here is a sample of our new faculty events:
Tuesday, January 24, 2006 ~ Noon-1:30PM-~Grading: Not so much how, but why. "Grades tend to reduce students' interest in the learning itself. One of the most well-researched findings in the field of motivational psychology is that the more people are rewarded for doing something, the more they tend to lose interest in whatever they had to do to get the reward" (Alfie Kohn, "From Grading to De-Grading"). Using Kohn's article as a discussion starter, join us to talk about grading practices at Dartmouth. DCAL Teaching Center 102C Baker-Berry. Lunch will be served and registration is at: DCAL@dartmouth.edu
Completed: Teaching and Tenure
The first New Faculty Luncheon for Fall 2005 will be held on Tuesday, November 15, 2005 from noon to 1:30pm in the DCAL Teaching Center (102C Baker-Berry). Tom Luxon, Director of DCAL and Cheheyl Professor of English, will lead an informal discussion about teaching at Dartmouth and how it relates to tenure. Bring your questions and concerns. Lunch will be provided. Please reserve your space by contacting Diane Chamberlain (via email or at 603-646-2655).
