Resources for NEW Faculty & Teaching Assistants

We welcome all new faculty and teaching assistants to Duquesne University! We encourage you to look at our Getting Started: Teaching at Duquesne page to begin your orientation to teaching and learning as it covers many of the resources, policies, and support needed for your start at Duquesne! 

  • Orientation to Teaching at Duquesne - The Center for Teaching Excellence offers programs to welcome and orient all who are new to the teaching community at Duquesne, as well as colleagues making the transition to a new role (e.g., moving from adjunct to full-time faculty).

Continuity for Remote Teaching

Another great teaching and learning resource is the K. Patricia Cross Academy video library, which hosts a searchable library of informative videos about teaching techniques that might inspire you or help you address some current dilemmas. The videos are short (2-5 minutes) and contain written supportive materials.
