Open House and Workshop Sessions

Teach Better with Mount Online

Want to learn more about how to get the most out of the online teaching tools available to you at the Mount? Bring your technology and we will bring ours.

TLCOL invites faculty to come meet with our staff about all aspects of teaching. From assignment design to student engagement and everything in between, we can support you in preparing and delivering your course offerings.

The weekly sessions are ‘open house’ format, where faculty can drop-in to ask their own questions, plus the TLCOL team will include a themed topic each week to focus on with faculty. Below is the schedule. There is no need to RSVP. If you can’t join in person, email online@msvu.ca to arrange for an online collaboration session via Skype.

*All sessions will be hosted in EMF 127D

Refresh Your Course Outline with a Transformational Perspective

A well-designed course outline is a powerful teaching and learning tool that can be used to move students from automated surface learning to transformational self-directed learning. Course outlines invite students into our courses and set the expectations of the teaching and learning that awaits. in this session, we explore the pedagogical reasoning behind the different parts, design, language and tone of a good course outline. In small groups, we will work to create course outlines that balance effective pedagogy and institutional requirements with the goal of fostering deep and rich student learning.
