I hear ya lady!
Lillian Hogendoorn
20:53
We hear you! Thanks for using H5P Studio! ;)
Tricia Bonner
27:27
Our paralegal department also requires final exams
Ann Gagne
30:01
Same with UTM that is where I have been focusing most of my support in term of rethinking pedagogy
Mel Young
30:14
The biggest concern we have from faculty are how students complete labs and placements.
Michelle Mouton
30:41
We often teach how we were taught.
Tricia Bonner
31:08
Yes Mel, that is the same for us at Loyalist. Lots of questions and faculty are finding it challenging to think about alternatives
Mel Young
31:38
Yes, and they are worried that accrediting bodies won't accept their alternatives. There hasn't been much clear direction from the accrediting bodies from what I've heard
Lindsay Woodside
32:01
The Ontario Extend Collaborator module helps educators become collaborators in a teaching and learning context. You might be engaging in these practices right now and this module will help you explore why being open to collaboration is key to building a personal learning network (PLN)!

Shauna Roch

That would be great!
Ann Gagne
39:23
I very much agree with Michelle
Tricia Bonner
40:08
hallelujah
Lindsay Woodside
40:15
We love facilitating sprints at eCampus!
Tricia Bonner
45:13
Michelle, that is one of our biggest fear with this. People are posting on the LMS and thinking they are now doing an online course.
Tricia Bonner
45:31
The fear is that they will then say online doesn't work.
Matt Clare
46:01
That chat window!
Michelle Mouton
46:05
@Tricia. I hear you! Bad online courses are worse than a bad f2f course sometimes
Matt Clare
46:20
Makes students share their side conversations with the whole class, and prof
Ann Gagne
46:26
We have a blend of synchronous and asynchronous activities and content depending on the faculty (though I have been promoting the asynchronous for accessibility reasons)
Michelle Mouton
48:40
It takes us up to 3 months to develop a "good" basic asynchronous course.
Lindsay Woodside
49:09
Wow...that's interesting to note Michelle
Michelle Mouton
49:23
With part-time contracts - I have no access to F/T developers
Mel Young
51:12
Michelle -- really? You can't access EDs/IDs?
Michelle Mouton
51:55
Nope - I have one on contract be she focuses on quality review and support. She cannot do development work.
Shelby Stinnissen
52:02
Hi everyone, Shelby here. I am the copyright services librarian at Centennial College.
Michelle Mouton
52:13
And people forget that "teaching" is different from "learning" when it comes to what a good course is.
Lillian Hogendoorn
52:16
Hi Shelby! Welcome :)
Shelby Stinnissen
52:34
Thanks Lillian, hi!
Mel Young
52:36
That's too bad --- all faculty PT/FT should have access to developers, as needd
Tricia Bonner
52:43
Well said Michelle,
James Skidmore
52:46
Good point Giulia - profs don’t need to be lecturing to be teaching! I wrote about this today - https://www.jamesmskidmore.com/skidwriting/dont-teach-facilitate
Lindsay Woodside
53:12
Empathy is so important in designing effective learning experiences.
Giulia Forsythe
53:29
Empathy! yes!
Tricia Bonner
53:43
this upcoming generation is going to force us to rethink how we do things
Shelby Stinnissen
54:47
This is a common conversation I have with folks!
James Skidmore
54:48
Well said, Lena!
Shelby Stinnissen
55:05
Yes! I always say to do the best you can
Lena Patterson
56:29
Workload is such a huge factor in all of this
Matt Clare
56:42
I found Waldo!
Michelle Mouton
57:18
Time for marking is also SWFted so is there not a "cost" to more complex assignments (and therefore the added marking load)?
Lindsay Woodside
01:00:02
Here's an article on the grade abolition movement Culum wrote back in 2012
