2021 Orientation for New Professors
2021 Orientation Program for New Professors
Welcome to the University of Ottawa!
Despite the current context, we hope that this virtual program will allow you to familiarize yourself with the resources available at the University of Ottawa that will make your teaching and research exciting. Come and discuss teaching strategies and technology with the Teaching and Learning Support Service team (TLSS) and meet with key-contacts who will be able to answer questions related to your research activities.
It is our hope that the various activities allow you to meet your new colleagues and begin a dialogue which will continue in the months and years to come.
