Best Practices for Teaching is a series of three workshops designed specifically for faculty. And Preparing to Teach Online is a one-day training event for those who want preparation for teaching their first online course. To see more information on these workshops, click here.

ICES Longitudinal Profile Request Form
We have moved from e-mail and phone requests to purely web-based ICES longitudinal profile requests. We hope this speeds up our processing of profiles and ensures that we have all the information needed to complete the profile. The secure (University log-in required) request form is available here. It takes approximately 10-14 days for us to process and return the ICES Longitudinal Profile.
