McGraw for Faculty
Pedagogy Programs and Workshops
The McGraw Center offers extensive programs and services for faculty related to their work as teachers. All of our programs are based in current research and discussions on effective teaching and student learning and are led either by Princeton faculty or by our professional staff.
We offer Instructional Consultations, one-on-one meetings with our professional staff to discuss specific challenges you face or new techniques you would like to try while you are teaching. These consultations may include visits to your class to provide feedback and help solve pedagogical issues.
New Faculty Orientation
For new junior faculty, we run the University-wide New Faculty Orientation. During this half-day session new faculty have an opportunity to meet other new faculty, hear suggestions from faculty colleagues on enjoying and excelling at Princeton, including advice on writing grants and getting published, and talk about teaching at Princeton.
Mentoring Lunch Fund
The McGraw Center provides the Mentoring Lunch Fund to help defray the costs of a meal for those faculty of large courses who plan to schedule weekly pedagogical meetings with their AIs. To be eligible for funding, the course must be a large lecture class (enrollment of 50 or more students) with two AIs or more or a lab course with enrollment of 40 or more with two or more lab assistants.
