 Faculty On-Boarding


In order to support new faculty acclimate to the Northshore Technical Community College environment, the Teaching & Learning Center (TLC) collaborated with the Faculty Senate to develop a first-year new faculty on-boarding program. The program begins in the fall semester and runs through the academic year. Several key workshops will be offered in-person (or synchronously) while others will be available as an online module.
