Re: Tune Into Teaching Series

Tune Into Teaching is a series of teaching-focused sessions for all instructors hosted by the Centre for Teaching Support & Innovation (CTSI) in the last week of August 2016. We encourage all instructors and librarians to attend and Deans, Chairs, and Academic Directors to promote these teaching events to your faculty.

The 3-day series of workshops is designed to provide instructors with techniques and strategies to maximize student engagement, support active and collaborative learning, create a welcoming and supportive classroom environment, and implement effective assessment practices and policies. Instructors will come away with specific strategies they can apply immediately in their own classes.

All workshops will take place at:

Centre for Teaching Support & Innovation

4th Floor, Blackburn Room
