Fall Orientation to Teaching and Learning

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 runs for 3 days, with a distinctly different audience for each day. Please register for each full day you plan to attend.
