All new faculty teaching at Georgia State's downtown campus are invited to attend one of two Pedagogy Orientations, organized by the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL). The orientation includes both plenary sessions and break-out groups with discussion tailored to your teaching experience. You will learn about GSU students and a broad range of topics, including effective syllabi, active learning, instructional technology at GSU, and how to advance your pedagogical practices. The orientation on Tuesday is a repeat of the Monday session, so you only need to RSVP for one.
