How do I start off on the right foot on the first day of class? How can I protect my students’ and my own wellbeing throughout the term? What are active learning classrooms and what pedagogical opportunities do they offer? What support and resources does the UTM campus offer instructors? The fall term can bring both excitement and uncertainty, but Ready, Set Teach Day will help set you up for success as you jump into the new term. All sessions, held virtually, will provide opportunities to learn from and with other UTM instructors.

The schedule can be found in the table below:
