Intensive Summer Teaching Institute (ISTI): Best Practices in University Teaching
Monday, August 16, 2010 ~ Friday, August 20, 2010 inclusive
9:30 AM ~ 4:00 PM, HHB 128
APPLICATION DEADLINE - Monday, August 2, 2010
Instructor: Dr. Marty Wall and Mary Sanseverino, Learning and Teaching Centre; and Erik Fleischer, Learning Systems
In response to requests from colleagues at UVic, we have designed the UVic ISTI both for new instructors who have not had the opportunity for training in teaching in their previous institution and for experienced instructors already at UVic who might not previously have had the chance to learn about current best practices in teaching in their discipline. The goals and content of the Institute complement and dovetail with the orientation event entitled “Essentials for Career Success at UVic for New Faculty, Librarians and Sessional Lecturers” being held on Wednesday, August 25th and Thursday, August 26th – the week following this ISTI. Participants can therefore proceed directly from the Institute into the orientation and hence be better prepared for the classroom.
In addition to microteaching opportunities and the unique features of the UVic teaching environment, the sessions will deal with such topics as teaching and learning strategies, lecturing, syllabus construction, grading student performance, and developing one’s own teaching dossier. Our intent is to make a real difference in how you approach your teaching, to save you some time in your teaching preparations, to improve your satisfaction with the learning outcomes of your students, and above all to put you in a position to assume your UVic teaching responsibilities this year with increased competence and confidence.

Essentials for Career Success at UVic for New Faculty, Librarians and Sessional Lecturers
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 & Thursday, August 26, 2010
Harry Hickman Building
BY INVITATION ONLY
New Faculty, Librarians and Sessional Lecturers will be provided with the essentials needed to build a strong foundation for success in teaching, service and research (if appropriate) at UVic, as well as with an orientation to the broad range of services and programs that can help you achieve your goals. A clear focus for the orientation is the chance to start to build community that will support you and your family now and into the future. This orientation is for anyone who is new (or new-ish) to UVic. Please note: many colleagues are new to UVic but have worked at other institutions, so the orientation is designed with this in mind and caters just as well to mid-career professionals moving to Victoria.
