VITAL offers a program tailored to meet the needs of faculty members who are new to Villanova's academic community. The two-part program is offered prior to the fall semester and during January. It is designed to support faculty new to Villanova and/or teaching in the higher education setting, help ease the transition in to the teaching position, answer questions, and familiarize them with Villanova's instructional resources.
In this interactive setting, new faculty engage with faculty from other disciplines, discuss and reflect on teaching practices that foster student learning, and have a sounding board for ideas and questions.
Please consult your department chair regarding core aspects of your teaching responsibilities.
