Event Description

At this welcome session you will be introduced to what you need to know to teach your first course at UBC, including: an overview of UBC students’ demographics; a discussion on UBC’s teaching and learning related strategic priorities and funding opportunities; what resources are available for you and how to access them; and, what your fellow faculty members consider to be the main challenges and enablers for their teaching at UBC.  You’ll also make some valuable connections with other new faculty across the university.  This session will be followed by a series of workshops and presentations relevant to those who are new to teaching at UBC — we welcome you to attend any that strikes your interest.

Facilitators: Judy Chan, Farnaz Badiee & Adriana Brizeno-Garzon
