Week Three, Winter 2020

Engaging Teaching

Teaching tips & more!

Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Contrary to some beliefs, Wikipedia’s quite a reliable source of information (check out the myth busting section in this slide deck) and guess who can make it even better? This coming Open Education Week (March 2-6), think about joining us as we join a bunch of other colleges and unis in Ontario in a Wikepedia-Edit-a-thon. The overarching goal is to help reduce the gender gap on Wikipedia. It should be an engaging learning experience for all of us. Pop your name in here if you’re interested in learning more.

Learning Technology

Using the technology without it using us.

Tech Talk & Tacos Take Two

We will be hosting a lunch time virtual get-together every week: 12-1230 on Tuesdays in our WebEx Digital Meeting Room. This week, we will have a look at WebEx itself (so meta!). We can show everyone how it works, how we can use it, and how you might want to use it in your teaching or for your own learning. Email Terry for a calendar invite, if you’d like one.

Trickle Down

Stuff to tell your students!


Students can get all their clubbing needs met on Tuesday, January 21st from 11-1 in the main foyer at Sutherland during Club Craze, hosted by the Student Administrative Council. And we don’t mean late-night-party clubbing; we mean student interest clubs! Clubs can be joined or new ones can be started! Maybe someone will start a Clubbin’ Club for late-night dancing enthusiasts.

Inner Workings

Helping you navigate the inner workings of the college

There’s an App for… Us?

That’s right! There is a Fleming mobile app. It functions much like the myCampus portal, but instead of looking it up in a browser on your phone, you simply open the app! Saves you a few clicks! Find it on Google Play or on your iPhone.

Keeping it Professional

Professional Learning Opportunities

Winter 2020 Professional Development Week

The Learning Design & Support and Employee Success and Organizational Development teams are partnering to bring you an exciting week of professional development during Winter Week 8. Please feed us your ideas for how best to do this by filling out this survey. In doing you will not be entered in a contest to win anything, but we will give a slight nod of appreciation when we pass you in the hallways.
