1:00 PM - 4:00 PM Describe Your Teaching Approach

This workshop is designed to give you a foundation to express your teaching philosophies and begin to build a professional teaching dossier. Participants will gain tools and strategies to craft an authentic teaching philosophy statement and prepare a draft outline. The overall format of professional teaching dossiers will be discussed as well as the materials and experiences you can collect and document to include in your dossier.

This workshop is open to all graduate students and postdoctoral fellows and is a requirement for completion of the University Teaching Certificate. A follow-up workshop will take place later in the term, providing the opportunity for you to receive feedback on your teaching philosophy statement draft and further discuss your dossier.

Register for this workshop.

  • 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM The Changing Face of Canada's Boreal Forests

     Speaker: Jennifer Baltzer, Department of Biology, Faculty of Science 

    Amplified high-latitude warming is driving dramatic changes in the structure, composition and function of boreal forests globally. These changes include direct impacts of climate change on tree growth and indirect impacts through increased rates of disturbances due to thawing permafrost and altered wildfire regimes. During this lecture, the boreal biome, recent advances in our understanding of how it is changing in the face of climate warming and associated disturbances, and the impacts of these changes for ecosystem services will be discussed.

    This event is part of the Laurier Milton Lecture Series, a partnership between the Town of Milton, Laurier and the Milton Public Library. Admission is free, and no registration is required.
