Pedagogy Refresh

I’ve been reading everything I can get my hands on related to teaching online. It is clear to me that you can’t just take classroom content, out it online, and get good results. There’s a skill to it, a revision of practices, a new set of considerations. It has been equally clear—and is now official—that fall classes at most Ontario institutions will be delivered online. There may be exceptions for labs especially as restrictions get slowly lifted, but they will […]

Tying The Room Together

This post is meant to be supplemental to two different professional learning sessions I’ve recently offered: Leave Room to Make Room, for the OLC Ideate Virtual Conference, andCreating a Course Podcast/Radio Show, for the Fleming College Virtual Teaching & Learning Week. I think the two sessions feed each other, so why not make one blog post for the two of them? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ The first session, Leave Room to Make Room (offered with co-host/kindred spirit Jonathan Lashley) was focused on discussing […]
