eLearning Lunch and Learn Series

eLearning Lunch and Learn Series

Please join us for the Teaching with Technology – eLearning Lunch and Learn Series to share your ideas on teaching with technology.

Hosted by Dr. John Doerksen, Vice-Provost (Academic Programs), and the Teaching Support Centre (TSC), theTeaching with Technology – eLearning Lunch and Learn Series focuses on the nexus between innovative uses of new and emerging technologies, and best practices in teaching and learning. These sessions (lunch will be provided) are intended to foster campus-wide collaboration, communication, and resource sharing about varied technology issues.

These lively forums will feature faculty and staff from across the disciplines sharing and discussing how they are successfully integrating technology into their curriculum. The Lunch and Learn series aims to foster a venue to share and learn from each other. These learning opportunities will occur throughout the Fall and Winter semesters.
