Extending into Fall 2021: Teacher for LearningWatch Recording

Facilitators: Alissa Bigelow and Bert Slessor

Why else do we teach but for learning? Yet, there is often a disconnect between conventional, accepted teaching practices and research evidence about what enables learning. In this webinar, we will explore how we learn and what we can do to ensure learning environments are effective, accessible, intersectional, and equitable. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues and complete the activity that will contribute to the completion of the module during this session.


Extending into Fall 2021: ExperimenterWatch Recording

Facilitators: Alissa Bigelow and Bert Slessor

This workshop will present a series of opportunities that invite you to experiment— to be curious and creative as you explore new technologies, and to reflect on new approaches to designing learning experiences. Experimentation is key to extending our skills related to online and technology-enabled learning. Join us as we create new learning objects that will help you start on your journey toward completing this module.


Extending into Fall 2021: CuratorWatch Recording

Facilitators: Alissa Bigelow and Bert Slessor  

You may not know it, but you likely are already a curator. If you have ever made a playlist in iTunes, or organized a personal library in your house or on a device, or bookmarked your favourite sites on your computer, or subscribed to a feed reader, you are a curator! In this webinar, you will explore OER repositories and experiment with new search tools to curate engaging, interactive, and open course materials from your learners’ perspective. You will also have a chance to ask questions about Creative Commons licenses and Copyright as you search for, find, and evaluate Open Education Resources (OER). You will be on your way to completing this module after attending this workshop.
