Calendar of Workshops


Spring Term 2021 Workshops & Learning Events 

Organizational and Human Development (OHD) is offering virtual workshops to support the current remote working environment to continue providing learning and development opportunities to the University community. 

Currently all workshops and events will be online and hosted in Microsoft Teams. An invite will be sent to you by the workshops facilitator(s). If you have questions, or have not received your invite prior to the course, please contact ohd@uwaterloo.ca.
