We encourage all of our teaching faculty to take advantage of the various resources below.
Established in 2001, and renamed in 2013, the Center for the Advancement of Teaching supports and nurtures effective teaching and learning at New York University. The Center promotes an ongoing, university-wide discussion about teaching and learning matters, striving both to facilitate and contribute to that conversation, and provides practical resources to members of the NYU community to enhance their effectiveness in the classroom.
Consult the Academic Calendar for important semester dates, holidays, and schedules.
Order books for your course using the Online Faculty Requisition Form.
NYU Classes is an online learning system that enables NYU faculty to use the web to enhance classroom instruction. Instructors can use NYU Classes to create full-featured, online course environments for the members of their class to provide content sharing, collaborative capabilities, assignment and other assessment tools as well as Gradebook functionality.
Turnitin is a plagiarism prevention and detection tool, an additional feature added to Blackboard and licensed by NYU for use by all faculty. Turnitin compares student document submissions to several sources: previous student submissions, the Internet, and several databases containing periodicals, journals, and other publications.
Incomplete grades should only be given in special cases such as medical emergencies.
Below are some forms and resources faculty should use when putting together course syllabi and new course proposals. For questions, please contact Lisa Kroin, Manager, Registration & Academic Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
