Lunch and Learn Series

CLT will continue to host a noon hour, Lunch & Learn series for faculty and administrative staff working in the online environment, starting Friday, October 13, 2017 and continuing on the second Friday monthly to May 11, 2018 (with the exception of December – see scheduled dates below).  

The purpose of the Lunch & Learn series is to give faculty and administrative staff an opportunity to come together in a sharing environment to learn about what others are doing and to hear about current research and best practices. This series could be for faculty and staff who are teaching online, who are using the online environment as a component for their campus courses, or who are interested in moving some of their content online.

These will be very informal sessions facilitated by Adrienne Sehatzadeh, Instructional Designer, eLearning Team, Centre for Learning and Teaching (CLT). The sessions will be fashioned, in part, from input/feedback from attending faculty and staff.

Would you like to know how your colleagues are working in the online environment? Would you like to share innovative ways you are using online tools? Are you curious about pedagogical approaches and best practices for the use of various tools in your online course? Feel free to bring your lunch and join us to learn more.

All sessions will be held in the CLT classroom, Room 400, Basement, Killam Library (unless stated otherwise) from 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm on the following dates.
