Orientation for onsite instructors
All new onsite instructors are required to complete a training before starting to teach. There are three options for completing the training: an on-campus training, a live virtual training, or an on-demand online course. See the schedule for this semester's live trainings: Teacher Training Workshops
Whichever training you opt to complete, all new onsite instructors are enrolled in a section of the New Faculty Orientation for On Site Instructors (AAU 021). This is an online, on-demand training that will be available for reference throughout the semester — whether or not you choose this as your training option.
Continuing onsite instructors are enrolled in AAU 022: Continuing Faculty Resources. This online resource covers roughly the same information as the orientation for new instructors; however, it is intended only as a resource and will be available for reference throughout the semester.
In addition, the Academy's Library of Teaching Resources (where you are right now!) also provides a searchable compendium of materials developed over many years to support and enhance your teaching practice.
Learn about your class
Every on-campus course has a website on the Academy's Learning Management System (LMS). Once you log in, you (and your students) can use the course website to review your syllabus and course outline. This is also the place for posting any supplemental materials for students (e.g., downloads, links, and media), taking attendance, and submitting grades.
