Drake Institute Successfully Co-Sponsors Hybrid New Faculty Program 

In August, newly hired faculty of all ranks and tracks were invited to a multi-day hybrid New Faculty Orientation (NFO). Hosted by the Office of Academic Affairs in partnership with the Drake Institute, NFO strives to equip Ohio State’s newest faculty with the requisite tools for an effective first year in the classroom.

Faculty attended concurrent sessions offered by Drake Institute staff and affiliates that equipped them with evidence-based strategies to be implemented into their own courses. A drop-in campus resource fair also connected new faculty to campus-wide support offices and facilities. The Drake Institute also hosted two days of virtual workshops on topics such as syllabus design, course planning & Carmen usage.  

The Drake Institute was honored to contribute to this critically important element of new faculty preparation and remain committed to supporting excellence in teaching across Ohio State's teaching community.
