Annual Events

Dalhousie Conference on University Teaching and Learning

Each Spring, CLT organizes the DCUTL. This well-established conference brings together faculty from around the region and beyond for scholarly presentations and discussions about student learning. 

New Academic Staff Orientation

New Academic Staff Orientation is one of the ways that Dalhousie University welcomes new colleagues to our academic community. The Orientation is designed to introduce you to the resources, services and people available to help you get off to a strong start in your academic roles at Dalhousie. Academic staff who have joined Dalhousie during the past year are invited to meet other new colleagues and to discuss strategies and resources to support your academic work.

Teaching and Learning Support for Part-time Academics
A free and voluntary lunchtime session for part-time academics (i.e. sessional instructors, adjunct faculty). Learn about the supports and resources available to you as part-time academics for all aspects of learning and teaching, as well as some general Dalhousie information. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, and meet new colleagues and other part-time academics.

Teaching Assistant Professional Development Day

This one-day annual Teaching Assistant Professional Development Day (TA Day) is a series of workshops that takes place the second week of September. Workshops focus on TAs and graduate students who are interested in a teaching career.  Individuals choose from concurrent sessions designed to address the essential skills required by graduate students to effectively facilitate classes and enhance their teaching skills.

Creating a Teaching Dossier

The teaching dossier (or portfolio) is widely used by university academic staff to document their teaching skills and responsibilities and to provide evidence of the quality of their teaching practice.  In this two-part workshop, held annually in May, you'll have the opportunity to think about your own teaching and how to accurately capture your practice in a dossier.
