CAFE Winter Faculty Professional Development Day — Thank You!

Thank you for attending our Winter Faculty PD Day on February 24th. We hope it was an inspirational day filled with learning, sharing, and reflection – and that you had some take-aways to apply to your teaching and learning. We would like to give a special thanks to all the presenters; this Faculty PD Day would not have been possible without your willingness to share your knowledge and expertise with the DC Community. For those faculty and staff who were unable to attend, you can request access to the recordings and experience the learning that took place.

Learning Management System Feedback Survey

Our learning management system (LMS), DC Connect, is a significant educational technology tool that supports student learning. Our licence for D2L Brightspace is up for renewal in 2022. At this time we are engaging in a consultation process where DC faculty have the opportunity to provide feedback. This survey focuses specifically on the LMS proper, rather than the LTIs and add-ons such as Virtual Classroom/Bongo. Below is a link to this survey. This deadline for the completion of this survey will be March 31st.
