FACULTY MENTORING RESOURCES

Career advancement and professional development occur over a trajectory with a number of distinct phases. At each phase of the faculty lifecycle there are important milestones that, when met, can help advance faculty and institutional goals. Learn about the key developmental phases of faculty careers at NYU by reviewing our list of resources that are aligned with each developmental phase in order to support faculty career development and bolster long-term student and university productivity and
success.

STUDENT-FACULTY ENGAGEMENT SERIES

The Center for Faculty Advancement is collaborating with the Center for Student Life and the Student Government Assembly to develop a new opportunity to foster stronger connections between students and faculty. Through the series, students can sign up to be matched with a professor for either a one-on-one virtual hangout or a group conversation. These conversations will serve as casual, intimate spaces for students and faculty across all schools to engage with one another, as a chance to network, mingle, and exchange ideas and perspectives. Participate in Student-Faculty Engagement Series.

NYU IT OFFERS ZOOM MONITORS

Zoom Monitors are available to assist faculty and teaching/course assistants leading remote courses. The monitors help facilitate interactions between the remote students and the faculty. Zoom Monitors can capture questions and concerns from remote students to share with the faculty member after class. If you would like to have a Zoom Monitor support your course please complete and submit this form.
* The Monitors are NOT teaching or course assistants and will not be able to offer help with grading or exam proctoring. Learn more about the scope of Monitor responsibilities. Please email Jennifer Gray, Online Program Services Specialist if you have any questions regarding this service.

INCLUSION, DIVERSITY, BELONGING, & EQUITY ADVISORY FUND FOR FACULTY

VIRTUAL WRITING CAFÉ WITH ACADEMIC IMPRESSIONS

The Center for Faculty Advancement through its partnership with Academic Impressions is pleased to announce the Virtual Writing Café for faculty. This resource consists of 4 videos, each of which is a full writing café session intended to be used by faculty members as a tool to bring some structure to their writing practice. Each video starts with a short introduction, followed by a 5-minute focusing exercise, and a 45-minute period for focused work. During the focused work period, there is a running timer available. At the end of the 45 minutes, there is an announcement letting people know they are done, and encouraging them to take a short break before going about their day or starting a second work block.

• ANNOUNCEMENTS •

LED TEAM JOINS CFA

For the last several years, the Office of the Provost and NYU IT’s Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT) team have worked closely together to foster a community of innovative teaching practices at NYU through a range of workshops, learning communities, and university-wide initiatives and events.

To enrich that capability further, we are pleased to announce that as of December 15th, the Learning Experience Design team (LED), led by Dr. Anandi Nagarajan, will now have a formal reporting relationship with the newly established Center for Faculty Advancement, led by Vice Provost Charlton McIlwain. Vice Provost McIlwain and Chief Instructional Technology Officer Ben Maddox feel that reinforcing this strategic relationship with a formal reporting structure across the Office of the Provost and NYU IT models the kind of academic and administrative partnership that highlights our collective strengths and will help to better position us to reach even more faculty across the NYU global community.

During this time of transition, there will be a moratorium on any new project requests that the LED team will consider.

We are grateful for the progress made by the LED team and look forward to what we will be able to achieve as the team supports the Center for Faculty Advancement work and mission.

BIG IDEAS COURSE SERIES, SPRING 2021

Faculty from across the University have created courses that explore big idea special topics that emphasize what is relevant to today’s students and deepen conversations rooted in social justice, the arts, history, literature, and science. The spring 2021 series consists of 9 two-credit classes and are either 7 or 14 weeks in duration. The Big Ideas Course Series is open to all NYU undergraduates regardless of school or major.
