Centre for Teaching and Learning - Spring 2021 Academic PD Week

As we head into the sunshine and warmer days of the spring/summer semester, we invite you to join the CTL team, and collaborators, in a specially curated series of PD sessions during our Spring Academic PD Week. Each session has been selected to support your journey as you embark on a new semester of teaching or jump into course outline revisions and curriculum development. Two (2) sessions will run each day, offering support and inspiration, and perhaps a little bit of new “know how”. Sessions will take place in Microsoft Teams and run from April 26th to April 30th, 2021. Register for as many as you would like! We look forward to seeing you there!

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.
