New Department Heads Information Booklet

Please evaluate our Teaching@WKU self-pace, online tutorials on teaching as a possible tool for development of your full and part-time faculty. It includes basic topics relating to teaching and also has a course on supervising thesis and dissertations as well as one on teaching with patients. We have a series of proprietary short videos that may make for a nice departmental colloquia on teaching—show the video and then have a discussion. Please let us know how we can help with such an event, for example tracking attendance for the faculty so they can easily include it in their annual evaluations, collecting evaluations of the seminar or facilitating a seminar. Click on Teaching@WKU to register.

    This site contains the following information:
    1. Support for systems. This is where a person can request help online (instead of calling 7000) for the computer system. Also, we have a few common instructions that a person can follow to install software or fix a problem themselves without having to call anyone.
    2. Purchasing hardware. This is where a person can go to get a quote for a supported system in order to purchase that system. Included are PC desktop and laptops, Macs, printers, and certain hardware upgrades for a current system.
    3. Training. This is where a person can see what training is offered for faculty and staff. Each month a new calendar is published. This is also where a person can register for the classes.
    4. Staff. A person can go here and find out who exactly is working on his/her computer. This lists all the staff in Microcomputing.
    Of course this is not everything on our site; however, these are the highlights and this would get the person looking around.
