Professional Development

Teaching Support

Learning Design and Teaching Innovation works with academics, including sessional staff, to offer a wide range of programs and services to support the teaching and learning process.

Course Design

Quality course design is essential for student success.  Course Coordinators are welcome to work one-on-one with a LDTI Learning Designer to review your course and make changes to it ready for the following year.  You will have an opportunity to evaluate your course and target areas for further development. We can assist with course mapping, learning outcomes, blended and online resources, assessment design, teaching technologies and building user-friendly Canvas sites.
