New Faculty

New Faculty Orientation

One of the initial ways the Academy for Teaching and Learning Excellence (ATLE) supports new faculty is during ATLE's day-long teaching seminar during the annual New Faculty Orientation (NFO), which is hosted by the Provost's Office and supported by several other campus units. The NFO is typically held one week before the start of the fall term each year; you should receive additional information and invitations to the NFO from your departmental chair or representative.

During NFO, new faculty are strongly encouraged to join ATLE's Teaching Squares, which are 4-member cohorts comprised of faculty from different academic disciplines who support each other during their initial year of teaching at USF.

ATLE provides numerous free services to all faculty, including consultations on demand and classroom observations upon request.

Faculty Events

The Academy for Teaching and Learning Excellence (ATLE) hosts several events that may be of interest to full-time faculty (Professors, Associate/Assistant Professors, and Instructors) on the USF Tampa campus.
