The New Faculty Seminar is meant to continue the discussions begun at New Faculty Orientation about teaching and the other professional obligations of new faculty at Stonehill -- as well as to provide new faculty a "safe" place for discussing their experiences (good and bad) throughout the year.
Although each seminar focuses on a several topics, there is also time at each meeting for more general discussion of participants' recent classroom experiences and any questions or concerns.
Seminars are typically held the first Monday of the month in the Duffy 114 conference room (114C) from 11:30-12:45. Lunch is provided, so we appreciate your RSVP before each seminar to give us a sense of what numbers to expect.
