FOTL 2014 Resources

Each fall The Gwenna Moss Centre hosts an orientation to teaching for those new to teaching or those new to the University of Saskatchewan. We welcome newly-hired faculty as well as not-so-new faculty who may have missed out on the orientation in past years.

This year our orientation program ran for 3 days, with a distinctly different audience for each day.
