Seeking New Talented Instructors to Join uOttawa PDI

The University of Ottawa Professional Development Institute provides recognized career learning to tens of thousands of decision makers and professionals at all levels in the public service and the private sector to advance their knowledge and expertise. Our experienced instructors are content and industry experts in their field and are trained to meet the specific needs of adult learners. They develop and deliver their own content and material and are hired for individual courses and programs as suppliers (not as full-time employees).

Our courses are aimed at professionals looking for professional development to help meet their learning and development objectives, and for tools they can bring back to their daily professions.
