Faculty Institute of Teaching (FIT)

FIT - Faculty Institute of Teaching (FIT)

Our intent is to make a real difference in how faculty approach their teaching, to save them time in their teaching preparations, to improve their satisfaction with the learning outcomes of students and, above all, to put them in a position to assume their UVic teaching responsibilities this year with increased competence and confidence. FIT is also open to other UVic instructors, including continuing and term sessionals as space permits. If you are a graduate student, the LATHE program may interest you.

FIT is composed of two separate but linked components. FIT 1 must be completed before FIT 2 can be taken:

(1) Faculty Institute of Teaching (FIT) 1 Summer or Fall, and(2) Faculty Institute of Teaching (FIT) 2 Spring

REGISTRATION is a two-step process.
1) Complete the REGISTRATION FORM found at: http://www.uvic.ca/learningandteaching/faculty/professional/workshops/fit/index.php; and send to the LTC.

2) The LTC will confirm your registration status.
