Spring TA Conference

The Fall and Spring TA conferences are a great opportunity to learn the foundational skills you require to successfully perform your teaching assistant (TA) duties and support student learning. You will have a chance to share ideas with graduate students from all faculties, as you professionally and personally develop your skills and knowledge about teaching and learning in higher education. Each conference devotes one day to support international TAs. These conferences are free to all TAs and instructors at UVic. Light refreshments will be provided.

Open educational resource (OER) grant deadline

The University of Victoria Students’ Society (UVSS), the Division of Learning and Teaching Support and Innovation (LTSI), UVic Libraries (Libraries) and University Systems have collaborated to offer a grant for the purpose of the adoption, adaptation, or development of open educational resources (OERs) for undergraduates with the aim of replacing existing textbooks or educational resources that can be prohibitively expensive. Ideally, the completed OERs will be useable not just at UVic, but other post-secondary institutions.
