Sessions
Research Support: Beyond the Three Councils
Friday, October 26, 2012    1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Teaching Support Centre, Room 122, The D.B. Weldon Library

Finding resources outside the three major Councils can be a challenge. Colleagues who have been successful discuss their approaches.

International Research Connections
Friday, November 16, 2012    1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Teaching Support Centre, Room 121, The D.B. Weldon Library

International collaboration may help you achieve your goals in research and teaching. How can you access the international community of scholars? What are some strategies for success in promoting your research? How best can you involve graduate or undergraduate students in international programs? Our panelists have different kinds of experience in international research and teaching. We invite you to hear their reports and engage them in conversation about these important and challenging connections.

Tenure and Promotion Under the Collective Agreement: How the Process Works
Thursday, December 6, 2012    1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Room 258, The D.B. Weldon Library

A panel of representatives from the UWO Faculty Association, the Office of Faculty Relations and the Office of the Provost will explain the procedures and respond to questions.

Writing - Getting It Going
Friday, January 18, 2013    1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Teaching Support Centre, Room 122, The D.B. Weldon Library

Publishing our research is a very high priority for academics, yet writing can be a barrier to success. We procrastinate, we hesitate, or we are insecure about what we do produce. In this workshop we consider approaches and techniques that help to get us writing, suggest ways to improve what we write and to make writing an ongoing part of our scholarly lives.

Development of a Teaching Dossier and a Teaching Philosophy
Friday, February 1, 2013    1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Teaching Support Centre, Room 122, The D.B. Weldon Library

Before applying for tenure and promotion, a teaching dossier and a statement of one’s teaching philosophy must be developed. This interactive session will provide valuable material to assist members of faculty in the preparation of these components for a personal file.
