The Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (The Centre) through the office of the Vice-Provost (Academic Affairs) is hosting the New Faculty Orientation which will be held on July 11th and 12th, 2017. It is very important for all new faculty members to attend this event, to meet new colleagues, and to learn more about the University and the supports and resources that are available to you. The theme for our two-day orientation is, “Igniting Your Journey.” It will consist of concurrent sessions on topics related to teaching, research and service; information booths from key departments/services/units at the U of M; a panel discussion with newer faculty members who started a year or two ago and who will share their experiences of life at the university and in Winnipeg; a keynote speaker who will present their views on what you need to know as new faculty member and more.
Our main goal for the orientation is to build a “Community of Practice” that will support you throughout your first 5 years at the University of Manitoba. We guarantee you two exciting days filled with opportunities for networking.
