This event is intended for new faculty (of any stream) who have arrived since September 1st of last year (2022) as well as any new faculty who were unable to attend our sessions last year or are new to their current teaching assignment.  The August New Faculty Teachings Days allow instructors to complete all the workshops that form the core of our New Faculty offerings at a timely point before the start of the fall term so may be of particular value to those teaching in the fall term and/or new to teaching and Waterloo.

The full session descriptions and registration is available at the link below. You may register for as many or as few as you feel you need. If you have questions about the workshop series, please feel free to contact Mary Power,
