New Faculty Orientation: Winter 2021

Friday, January 29, 2021 10:00 am - 11:00 am EST (GMT -05:00)

Faculty members who started at Waterloo after (or who missed) the new faculty events in August and September are invited to an information session on January 29, 2021. Representatives from the Centre for Teaching Excellence and the Faculty Association will be there to share information and answer questions about starting your career at UW.

Before the session

In advance of this live session, we encourage you to look through the recordings and resources from our 2020 August New Faculty Teaching Days and September Orientation events. These are curated for you in the January New Faculty Day content module in the New Faculty Orientation site on LEARN (UW’s online course management system).

The LEARN site also features a checklist for new faculty, important links, a collection of recent campus-wide communications, and a campus resource directory.

Please email the New Faculty Planning Committee at if you did not receive an invitation and cannot find the meeting link in LEARN.

Up next

You're also invited to an informal social in Microsoft Teams on February 11, 2021 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm. This informal gathering is intended for new faculty members to get to know one another and is open to all new faculty from the last couple of years. Click here to join or call (833) 827-4832 and enter the conference ID 830 402 598#.
