New Faculty Orientation

In May 25th, 2001 the Academic Senate of the UPR-RP Campus established Certification 101 in order to approve a proposal of the former Dean of Academic Affairs, Dr. Carlos G. Ramos Bellido, for a teaching-learning curriculum for new full-time professors, teaching assistants and teachers with probationary appointments. Since then, the Center for Academic Excellence holds a three day activity called New Faculty Orientation (OPN, for its Spanish acronym) every August as a way to welcome new professors to our Campus.

Participants receive a series of institutional orientations that include presentations from different campus offices whose services are useful for their upcoming teaching experience. Also, as part of this activity, varies workshops are offered on relevant topics to their college work: Teaching and Learning Strategies, Assessment and Evaluation of Student Learning, Academic Technology, Academic Research, Professional Support for Faculty, and University and the Community. The OPN provides an excellent opportunity for new professors to meet and become familiar with the staff of our campus.

For this year OPN, the OEAE prepared an online presentation of our office and services. With the support of Dr. Héctor Melendez, Resident Professor in Technology of the Center for Academic Excellence, in the following video Prof. Nadia Cordero offers an orientation to our new UPR-RP professors.
