Description: During this session, a panel of junior faculty members from a variety of disciplines will present issues they encountered during their early teaching experiences at VCU. The subsequent Q and A period is intended to be a highly interactive session where new VCU faculty can benefit from the experiences of their early career colleagues, all of whom have recently adjusted to their first teaching assignments at VCU. The faculty panel will offer their candid advice on their initial expectations about VCU students and teaching in general, how those expectations have been met (or adjusted), and strategies for navigating the support resources and units on campus with ample opportunity for questions and answers.
