Faculty Orientation – Registration

Hello, and welcome to Pratt! We hope that you will be able to join us for this fall’s Faculty Orientation, which is scheduled for Thursday, August 22, from 8:30 AM–12:30 PM in the ARC Building (E-02) followed by optional hands-on workshops in the afternoon. We will welcome you with a light breakfast and end with lunch.

The morning’s programming will be devoted to discussions about how Pratt supports its faculty and its students, with sessions on:: 

  • Supporting  faculty in their teaching, with a focus on resources available and a workshop session on helping ALL students achieve the goals we set for them
  • Supporting  student success, with a focus on the holistic support available to students in the form of academic and Student Life resources, the policies and processes that guide the work we all do, and the kinds of challenges that tend to come up in any given semester
  • Supporting faculty in their creative work / research, with time to engage with Pratt’s Associate Provost for Research and Strategic Partnerships

This  will also be a chance for you to learn about Pratt’s system of shared governance and how you can participate in it. Our goals are for you to leave this Orientation having learned some key things about how Pratt works as well as the resources we have to support you, and energized by the prospect of participating in the Pratt community.

You will also have the opportunity to reserve a spot for optional workshops: Learning Management System (LMS), Research Clinic Hours and ePortfolio for Learning that will take place immediately following this event. See details and RSVP to sign up.
