Macademia Explorer

Faculty Orientation & Networking

Have you joined our faculty within the past few years but aren’t sure what you have access to or what opportunities are available for faculty development? 

Join us for Macademia Explorer & Faculty Orientation with Networking!  

This event was for faculty across campuses. 

In this Faculty Development Orientation session, you will be given a quick tour of all the McMaster FHS Program for Faculty Development has in store for you. Following that, you will be given an overview of our new faculty development modular-based certificate system. Finally, we will engage in a peer-networking session to help you begin to think about and articulate your own academic faculty identity.

We will have discussions about different ways to get involved in academia: opportunities for teaching and non-teaching roles, how to stay connected, and how to meet your faculty development needs via our program's events. 

Who knows, local luminaries may attend and be part of the networking!

What is Macademia Explorer QUEST?

It is intended to onboard new faculty to be part of an exciting new certificate program called the: Macademia QUEST program (check out the site: for some details). During this session, you will also receive some orientation about the rest of the Faculty Development offerings, and engage in some much desired networking and community building ... all as part of your first QUEST.
