Walk and Talk Teaching

October 21, 2014

Do you have a new teaching idea, burning issue, or conundrum that you would like to share with others? Are you interested in listening to other instructors’ innovations, perspectives and solutions? In celebration of ‘Walktober’ at Dalhousie (see below), the Centre for Learning and Teaching is taking the classroom to the street.   Join Suzanne Sheffield in this open opportunity to engage in some gentle exercise and explore our teaching community across the disciplines.

Participants may set their own walking pace. Please wear comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing and footwear.   Our route will take us along the Halifax Urban Greenway on Beaufort Avenue (http://www.halifax.ca/trails/AccessibleTrails.php#D) and loop around using Bellevue Avenue and back to the Dalhousie Studley Campus.

The walk will start at noon at the front of the Killam Library.  Please feel free to sign up for one, two, or all three sessions!

Additional Information

What is Walktober?

The month of October is being transformed into “Walktober” for 2014.  Walking groups are being assembled to track activity, motivate each other, and support the goal of increasing physical activity among employees at Dalhousie.  While a daily goal of 10,000 steps is agreed to provide health benefits, the overall goal of Walktober is participation and increasing current levels of physical activity.

This initiative is being coordinated with support from the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the President’s Office, and Human Resources, and coincides with October being National Healthy Workplace Month.
