TDP for New Faculty

The Teaching Development Program (TDP) for New Faculty helps participants build a foundation for their teaching careers by providing a network of support around teaching and learning. The intended audience is faculty who are either new to teaching, new to UBC or both. Below are some suggested core and elective workshops to fulfill the TDP requirements. We will add more workshops as they become available. Please visit the TDP for New Faculty and review core and elective elements under the “Coursework” section.
