New Faculty Orientation

 

Welcome to Lone Star College-Montgomery!  New Faculty Orientation (NFO) is designed to prepare new faculty for the first day and beyond, but also give experienced faculty the opportunity to learn more about the various services and resources available to faculty and students available at LSC-Montgomery. Participation in NFO is required for all newly hired full-time faculty but is open to all adjunct faculty and dual credit instructors. NFO consists of two distinct parts:

  • Part 1: D2L Community Group: New Faculty Orientation | Part 1 is an online course hosted in D2L that provides an overview of the campus and a list of resources faculty can return to as often as needed. Part 1 must be completed prior to Part 2.
  • Part 2: New Faculty Orientation Live! | At this event, you will meet colleagues, campus leadership, and your mentor, learn more about the college and available resources, as well as get all of your questions answered. You'll also have an opportunity to work with an instructional designer to get started in LSC's learning management system, D2L. The next NFO Live! session is scheduled for August 23 from 8:30 am - 1:00 pm.

Participants receive an invitation to participate in NFO from the Faculty Resource at the beginning of each semester. If you have not received an invitation, please contact MC-FRC@lonestar.edu .
