The Office of the Vice President and Provost, working in conjunction with offices across the University, is beginning a series of new faculty integration workshops entitled ‘The Stepping In Series’. Offered
throughout the year, future workshops may consider issues such as:
Enhancing the student experience
Academic careers at the University of Toronto
Negotiating life in academia
Putting Stepping Up into context
Organising your documents for evaluation
Becoming an academic advisor
Plagiarism resources and policies
Integrating teaching and research
The sessions are designed to introduce the University of Toronto and assist new faculty members as they settle into a career in academia.
The first workshop will be held on 24th November from 12pm-2pm in the Upper Dining Room of the Faculty Club, a light lunch will be provided. This session, entitled ‘In Conversation with Dave Farrar (Deputy Provost and Vice Provost Students) and Edith Hillan (Vice Provost Academic)’ will offer an opportunity for discussion of the University’s commitment to its faculty and students.
Please encourage any of your faculty who joined the University in the last two years to attend these sessions. They can register online at http://www.provost.utoronto.ca/English/The-Stepping-In-Series.html.
