Attendees spent the rest of the day in focused streams – before lunch, they learned more about their stream; in the afternoon, they had time to build and explore within their stream and create something they can use in their courses. The session facilitators have shared their resources; you can find them on the Resources page of the Teaching & Learning Day website.
All participants who met the criteria for the day can earn a micro-credential.
The day also included remarks from Laurel Schollen, Vice-President Academic at Seneca, David Porter, Dean of Innovative Learning at Humber, and Henry Decock, Associate Vice-President of Academic Partnerships, Applied Research, and Academic Quality at Seneca.
In case you missed it: several previous keynote sessions from Teaching & Learning Days in the past are available to watch on the Teaching & Learning Centre website.
