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.
