The Teaching and Learning Forum is an annual half-day event hosted by the Paul R. MacPherson Institute for Leadership, Innovation, and Excellence in Teaching. It offers new and returning teaching assistants (TAs), graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and sessional instructors information sessions and workshops on various teaching and learning topics, as well as an opportunity to network.
