This short course will provide an introduction to how learning technologies may support student collaboration, reflection, creation, sharing and other key elements of learning and provide opportunity for you to consider how they may do so in your course and for your own professional development and research. The course will provide hands on experience in using several tools and provide ample time for discussion and debate about the challenges, opportunities and potential impact technology may have on your teaching practice and your students’ learning.
Do you know an instructor who is committed to outstanding teaching? Have you wanted to nominate a great teacher for a teaching award and want some ideas about how to prepare an award nomination? If so, or if you simply want to learn more about the process and U of S teaching awards, we invite you to attend our panel on teaching award nominations.
Note: This workshop is part of the Developing a Reflective Teaching Portfolio short course for faculty, instructors, and graduate student teachers.
Your course syllabi can be very important to the students in your classes, providing them with information on assignments, quizzes and exams, your office hours and other valuable information about the class. But, your syllabus can also show students about who you are as a person and an instructor through its format and tone. The University of Saskatchewan Academic Courses Policy details the requirements of what should be included in every syllabus. Based on this policy and with consultations from a variety of stakeholders across the institution, the U of S Instructional Design Group created a syllabus template and accompanying guide.
In this gathering participants will be guided through a collective articulation and representation of their vision for decolonizing and Indigenizing formal education. They will also co-create pedagogical strategies reflecting Aboriginal worldviews, knowledges, and ways of knowing. Participants will depart this gathering with concrete ideas and tools that can be used to work toward their vision.
This day will be a special feature event with a viewing of the documentary "We were Children" at 10:30 am and a presentation with Lyna Hart from 1-4 pm in the afternoon
