Campus-Wide GSI Teaching Orientation 

After careful consideration, CRLT has decided to transition our Fall 2020 GSI Teaching Orientation (GSITO) to an online offering available to GSIs starting Wednesday, August 12. This orientation is intended for GSIs teaching on the Ann Arbor campus. More details can be found on our GSITO page. 

Campus-Wide New Faculty Orientation

The Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT) will once again conduct a New Faculty Orientation to introduce all new faculty to the University of Michigan. The Campus-Wide New Faculty Orientation is held every year before the beginning of the Fall semester. The next orientation will be held virtually via Zoom Webinar on Wednesday, August 26, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

LSA New Lecturer Orientation

The LSA New Lecturer Orientation is designed to help lecturers learn about relevant LSA policies and resources that can support them in their teaching, teach them more about setting up course technology, and allow them to talk with experienced LSA lecturers about U-M culture and resources. We hope this is a starting point for lecturers to build community among yourselves across departments.
