The goal of the teaching lunch is to kick-off the academic year with an overview of key resources and discussions to jump start your teaching at Stanford. The session is primarily oriented to new faculty and lecturers. Continuing faculty and lecturers are welcome.

We will talk about Stanford students, syllabus design, course evaluations, resources for teaching and learning with and without technology, and free services for you and your students that will save you time and engage your students.

After a general introduction on Stanford policies and resources, participants will join two 30-minute conversations with staff from the VPTL.
