Successful onboarding of newly recruited faculty members to a new setting is crucial to help them perform their best and maintain the success of the school. However, delivering tailor-made orientation programs considering the individual differences, and yet avoiding being overwhelming has always been a challenge.
This webinar is aimed at portraying the new staff orientation program at a School of Languages in İstanbul, Turkey. The presenter will share how the new members are engaged in the system and the culture of the institution, get familiar with the available resources, and develop a sense of belonging right from the start. The feedback collated from the previous years’ onboarding program attendees will also be shared to further discuss the program’s impact on teaching and teacher wellbeing from the new faculty members’ perspective.
