Event Date & Time
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, discuss UBC’s teaching and learning related strategic priorities and funding opportunities, find out what resources are available for you and how to access them, and hear about 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: Erin Yun, Judy Chan, Adriana Briseno-Garzon, Christine D’Onofrio and Loch Brown.
