New Faculty Institute Learning Community

The New Faculty Institute (NFI) is a learning community focused on creating a space for new BGSU faculty to connect and engage in discussions about their teaching, scholarship, career plans, and general experiences as faculty. Institute gatherings will be held twice a month with asynchronous activities between sessions. The first gathering each month will be a chance to have informal discussions and collaborate on creating an action plan to set you up for success. The second gathering each month will involve discussions and activities related to a topic in the book Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning. Throughout the program, faculty at various career stages will be invited to join gatherings to share their knowledge, experiences, and advice with NFI members.
