New Faculty Book Bags

The ECTL has an endowment from the Ellbogen Foundation for new faculty books bags that we give out at new faculty orientation. These bags contain books on teaching and learning as well as some items that promote the center. This year's book is Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning (Lang).

Small Teaching: Everday Lessons from the Science of Learning


Cognitive psychologists, neuroscientists, and biologists all have produced a revealing body of research over the past several decades on how human beings learn, but often translating these findings into the classroom is overwhelming for busy instructors. Small Teaching bridges the gap between research and practice by providing a fully developed strategy for making deliberate, structured, and incremental steps towards tuning into how your students are hardwired to learn.

New Faculty Peer Mentoring Groups

This faculty learning community will help you develop valuable relationships with your peers as you continue to support one another throughout the year. Groups of 4-6 will meet regularly with dates and times determined by the group and will be assigned a mentor from the ECTL. If you are interested, fill out a form at New Faculty Orientation or email Janel Seeley ( by Friday, August 30th with the names and email addresses of group members, including one lead contact. We can also assign you to a group.
