January 2021 New Faculty Welcome

January New Faculty Welcome

Friday, January 8, 2021

New faculty who missed Day 2 of New Faculty Orientation in August or have recently joined the Ohio State family are invited to attend the morning sessions of January New Faculty Welcome.

The teaching-focused morning will provide strategies for learning engagement and evidence-based teaching practices, an introduction to Ohio State students and early connections to the campus community. In the afternoon, all faculty are welcome to join a session to discuss promotion and tenure at Ohio State, including an overview of the process and what documentation will be needed. 

The agenda below contains all the materials you should need for the January New Faculty Welcome. All Zoom meeting links are protected by a common passcode. This passcode will be distributed to all registered participants prior to the beginning of New Faculty Welcome.

Please contact Jo'Vanna Zanders, zanders.3@osu.edu, with any questions or concerns.
