Course design includes identifying learning outcomes, crafting a course outline and planning your weekly lesson plans. It is primarily the high level organization and development of a course’s structure, learning activities, feedback opportunities and content.
Curriculum development refers more broadly to high-level planning across a program or degree. We work with departments, in consultation with department chairs and deans, to assist with the development of clear pathways for students through their degree. We support departments throughout the program review process. We can also assist with the development of an online development strategy.
Teaching development includes all professional development activities related to enhancing university teaching skills and knowledge. We offer a wide range of planned activities throughout the calendar year that focus on different aspects of effective teaching that is evidence-based. Through one-on-one consultation, we can also address any teaching questions or challenges from facilitation and assessment to classroom management and conflict resolution.
Teaching Portfolio Development:
Building a teaching portfolio is an essential part of the file you submit for reappointment, tenure and promotion. We can support faculty with the refinement of teaching philosophies and the organization of evidence of teaching effectiveness.
Scholarship of Teaching and Learning:
There is a growing body of research around teaching and learning across the disciplines. We have information and resources to share with faculty that are interested in participating in a teaching conference or engaging in a research project.
