Course for New College Faculty

Hello everyone!

I am creating a course on effective teaching for new college faculty--primarily directed at humanities and qualitative social science faculty, and I'd like to get your input on topics and skills we should cover in such a course.  If you were taking a course like this, what questions would you want to be answered?

Thanks in advance for your assistance!
