Columbia’s Center for Teaching and Learning is holding orientation sessions in August for new and junior faculty on the Medical Center Campus. Register here.

Orientations provide an opportunity for new instructors to:

  • Get familiar with instructional resources on campus, procedures and policies, and methods for getting a class off to a good start.
  • Connect with other first-time instructors as well as teaching support staff at the CTL.
  • Explore topics such as teaching for the first time, active learning, grading strategies and rubrics, syllabus design, tools for teaching and learning, among others.

There are two other orientation events for faculty on the Morningside Campus on August 23 and August 31. Learn more at our orientation sessions for faculty at For more information on our orientation sessions for graduate students, visit
