Each fall The Gwenna Moss Centre hosts a Fall Orientation to Teaching and Learning 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. We will also be holding an Instructional Skills workshop for the three days prior to FOTL.
The GMCTE offers the first "Truly Open Online Course" (TOOC), called "Introduction to Learning Technologies," beginning January 21, 2014
