Welcome to the Teaching Commons!

 


A short video introduction to the Teaching Commons


 About the Teaching Commons

The Teaching Commons brings together like-minded individuals who are interested in exploring and sharing teaching and learning innovation across York University. The Teaching Commons team is based in TEL 1050 and maintains a virtual presence via our website and Moodle courses. More than a presence, we are a network of colleagues, collaborations and projects, working across and within Faculties and Support Services.  We report to the Office of the Associate Vice-President, Teaching and Learning.  http://avptl.info.yorku.ca/

Upcoming Events

We are delighted to announce our new space in TEL 1050. The refurbished area provides a space for all who teach at York (contract faculty, tenure stream faculty, TAs, new and experienced) to meet. For 2014-15 we have organized monthly 'Communities of Practice' groups for new instructors and those teaching 1000 level courses. See http://teachingcommons.yorku.ca/community-of-practice/ for details and sign up forms.


Good practices of adapting a face to face course to a blended/online course -- Samples from LAPS and Health AIF projects

Four faculty members adapted their individual face to face courses to blended/online courses in a jointly ran AIF project between the Faculties of Health and LA&PS in 2012-2013 academic year. They were invited to share their experience in designing, developing, and delivering these four highly rated courses in a recent one-hour seminar. During the seminar, each of them took about 15 minutes to describe their experiences, their lessons learned about adapting their face-to-face course to a blended and/or fully online format, and respond frankly to questions posed by faculty members who attended the presentations.
