New Instructional Resources Hub
The Teaching and Learning Centre has curated a series of instructional resources on timely topics to support your on-campus and online teaching and learning. If you are looking for just-in-time self-paced professional development, ideas for authentic alternative assessments, or wondering what to do about ChatGPT, we have found lots of evidence-based resources on these and other common questions.
Teaching Squares Program
The Teaching Squares program provides an opportunity for instructors to gain new insight into their teaching through a process of reciprocal classroom observation and self-reflection. Four instructors from different disciplines work together to visit each other’s classes once over the semester. Participants commit to visiting one hour of one class for each colleague in their Teaching Square. Groups coordinate which class sessions are the most suitable for classroom observation. The goal of the program is to provide an opportunity for instructors to observe colleagues teaching in a range of disciplinary settings and class sizes and become familiar with strategies they may want try in their own teaching. To join a Teaching Square reach out via email to email@example.com.
