August 2020 W Teaching Orientation

Given the pandemic, we have prepared two 15-20 minute videos to replace the in-person W Teaching Orientation that we typically offer in August.  These videos work best in full-screen mode.  If you have any follow-up questions or wish set up an online consultation about W teaching, please email Tom Deans (

Special note to graduate students who are required by University guidelines to complete the W Teaching Orientation before teaching a W course: When done viewing these videos, please email Margie Ouimette ( to let her know so that you have completed this abbreviated version of the orientation.
