Engaging Teaching

Teaching tips & more!

Extending an Invitation

Ontario Extend is a resource designed to help empower educators to create engaging technology-enabled learning experiences for their learners. This May and June, concurrent with Academic Renewal, we will facilitate a group of Fleming educators through the program. Participants will receive a digital badge for every module they complete, and the Empowered Educator micro-credential if all modules are completed. We are in the beginning stages of organizing and would just like to collect names of anyone interested in joining us for all or part of the experience. It will take approximately 3 hours/week from the beginning of May to mid-June. Pop your name in here if you are interested!

Learning Technology

Using the technology without it using us.

A Gateway to D2L

When new students and faculty join us in our lovely Fleming College community they may be asking themselves “What the heck is D2L?” Good question! We’ve tried to distill the answer to that question by including a simple “who, what, when, where, why, how” of D2L itself and a few of its most useful tools in the Fleming College TechBank. If you go to either the D2L for Students or D2L for Faculty categories, you’ll see that overview (which provides links to tutorials etc if needed). It’s not quite fully fleshed out yet, so we’d love to hear your feedback on how to make it better.

Trickle Down
