New Faculty Institute kickoff luncheon on Sept. 11 to feature Michael Wesch

By Karen Large

As part of our welcome to K-State, The Teaching and Learning Center invites all new faculty to the New Faculty Institute Kickoff luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 11, in the Flint Hills Room of the K-State Student Union. Please RSVP by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 8.

Our topic, Teaching Upside Down, will be presented by our speaker, Michael Wesch, associate professor, anthropology and university distinguished teaching scholar.

The New Faculty Institute is a universitywide program to introduce newly hired faculty to our missions of teaching, research and service, and to facilitate their success at K-State. The New Faculty Institute will offer information and networking. The institute facilitates the transition of newly-hired faculty members into the K-State academic environment by providing information and tools that can help them become successful as educators and researchers at the university. Each month the institute offers social luncheons filled with information, socializing and food.

For more information, contact Karen Large, New Faculty Institute coordinator, at kmlarge@k-state.edu or Jana Fallin, The Teaching and Learning Center director, at teachingandlearning@k-state.edu.

We look forward to seeing you!
