New Faculty Teaching Enhancement Program

New Faculty Orientation session in Marcum

As a new faculty member at Miami University, it takes time to feel like you're part of the larger Miami Community. We can help facilitate that process. Join our New Faculty Teaching Enhancement Program (NFTEP) and meet your colleagues—all of whom share the common desire to enhance their teaching skills.

While developing relationships that could last the length of your career, you'll learn from each other and with each other. Share innovative teaching strategies, attend seminars and workshops, and access a wealth of information about the learning and teaching process.

Keep a reflective journal

Write a reflection about each session you attend and a short summary statement about the program overall at the end.

Complete a teaching project

You might choose, for example, to revise your syllabus or lesson plans for a unit. Your project should result in some kind of tangible product, plus a one- or two-page reflection by you on the strengths and weaknesses of this project. You should be prepared to share something about your project at the closing event for the term.

Receive $400

On completion of the program, you will receive $400 of professional development funds (to be used by June 1, 2023). Enhance your teaching skills by traveling to workshops, enrolling in professional memberships, or purchasing items for classroom use such as books.
