1) There will be a campus tour for all incoming grad students on Wednesday, September 9, starting at 4:00. We'll be meeting right outside the History Department (Room 1158 in the FASS), and will head downtown to grab a drink afterward. Returning grad students are, of course, welcomed and encouraged to come as well. Although finding out the lay of the land is reasonably useful, this is also a great opportunity to meet everyone before the official meet and greet on the 11th.
2) Graduate students and teaching assistants are cordially invited to the Centre for Learning and Teaching's 7th Annual Teaching Assistant Professional Development Days: September 15 & 16, in the Student Union Building, 3rd Floor, Rooms 302 & 307. Are you a teaching assistant at Dalhousie or a graduate student interested in a teaching career? Sign up for CLT's TA Professional Development Days. Through a series of workshops we'll help you learn how to grade students' work, lead discussion groups, engage students' interests, run labs, and much more. Registration is free. Please register to ensure adequate materials are available. To register, visit their web site, or contact CLT (494-1622 or CLT@Dal.Ca ).
