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/

Please join us for: “Creating the Ethical Classroom”
The 21st century workplace demands educated professionals but the situations faced in the 21st century workplace demand educated professionals with ethical decision-making and acting abilities. As faculty, we can infuse ethical education into every classroom, no matter the discipline or the subject matter being taught, so that we graduate ethical professionals and citizens. In this workshop, author, lecturer and academic integrity director Dr. Tricia Bertram Gallant will guide participants through the process of seamlessly integrating integrity and ethics into any classroom. The goal is to create an ethical classroom, not just where cheating is the exception and integrity is the norm, but where students are learning and practicing the ethical decision-making and acting skills they’ll need as Ryerson graduates.
