It contains "how to" information, instructor and classroom responsibilities, classroom regulations and procedures, information about Student and Instruction services and programs, emergency procedures, and a lot of "nuts and bolts" information.

  2. Download Technology Links for New Employees (110.7 KB pdf)  This document includes important links to information about our Internet e-mail system, faculty information about the uses of MyPortal to manage your class and administrative duties, how to get accounts for a faculty webpage, for TurnItIn plagiarism prevention software, and for Catalyst/Moodle Classroom Management account and training.

  3. Download the New Faculty Checklist for the Beginning of the Quarter (57.0 KB pdf)  Just as it says in the title: a quick checklist of critical items to know or acquire before the start of your first term.

  4. Go to the MyPortal Resources for Faculty webpage  This webpage is a general FAQ help page with links to materials used as a part of the Faculty MyPortal training, and to other resources. Lots of information to help you get started quickly and to answer your questions on a specific topic.
