2022 – Orientation Program for New Professors

Welcome to the University of Ottawa!

This 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. We hope that the various activities will allow you to meet your new colleagues and begin a dialogue which will continue in the months and years to come.
