    This is a fully-online asynchronous course.
  • Authentic Assessment – coming soon
  • Developing Online Materials for Your Course
    This course is designed to help participants explore and use online tools to develop materials for their course. Participants will use principles of universal design for learning (UDL) to develop AODA compliant modules, slideshow videos, screencasts, and interactive activities. Tools explored include Adobe Spark, Google Sites, Screencast-o-Matic, Loom, PowerPoint, H5P, and MS Stream.
    This is a fully-online course with synchronous sessions.

    This is a two-day synchronous course.
  • Teaching Unique Diverse Learners (UDL)
    This course will explore our Unique, Diverse Learners and the principles of UDL (Universal Design for Learning). Participants will examine a course they currently teach and take some first steps into incorporating UDL into their teaching practice.
    This is a four-week online asychronous course.
  • Teaching with Technology 1
    This course is designed as an introduction to Learn@Seneca, and provides opportunities for reflection on technology in education, and how accessibility can impact a learning experience.
    This is a fully-online course with synchronous and asynchronous sessions.
  • Teaching with Technology 2
    This course expands on the concepts presented in Teaching with Technology 1. The focus is on ways of using technology to connect with students, whether in an in-class, hybrid, or fully online setting. In this context, you will explore advanced features of Learn@Seneca to support an interactive, collaborative learning environment.
    This is a fully-online course with synchronous and asynchronous sessions.
  • The Science of Learning Series
    This course consists of a series of four online modules that will provide you with an introduction to the Science of Learning, and applications in the classroom. The series will pull insights from prominent researchers in the field such as Robert Bjork, Daniel Willingham, and Dylan Wiliam. We will also build on pertinent concepts presented by keynote speakers Joe Kim, Yana Weinstein, and Megan Sumeracki from previous Teaching & Learning Centre Events at Seneca. Participants will reflect on how research in memory and learning might inform their practice, and how we might help students adopt more effective learning strategies.
