CAE Scholarship Discussions of Teaching & Learning

Similar to last year, the St. Clair’s Centre for Academic Excellence will once again host a variety of journal discussions on teaching & learning topics.  Any St. Clair Faculty or Academic staff member is welcome to participate in these conversations.  

I am excited to let you all know that we will be collaborating with Niagara College and Mohawk College for our Scholarship Discussions this year!

Please see the list of events booked for Fall 2019.  Mark your calendars for any topics that are of interest to you.  I will be sending out reminders the week before each registration link closes. 

A reminder to those that are in CEDP, you will need evidence of engaging in one of the scholarship discussions.

It’s as easy as:

  1. Reading any one (or more) of the chosen articles on various topics
  2. Meeting virtually from the comfort of your home or attending in person on campus with colleagues to share your impressions, questions, and insights.

The discussion forum intends to support engagement and networking discussion within the broader teaching community.  All full and part-time faculty are welcome to join in these conversations through in whichever means suits your schedule.  Join us to engage in one of the synchronous face-to-face conversations that occurs in partnership with other campuses OR contribute asynchronously in a thoughtful conversation that is housed on the SCC Training Centre discussion forum.  Past discussions posts, as well as entire conversations, are recorded an archived for those who are unable to attend. 

Engage colleagues in exploring these ideas and teaching practices individually and collaboratively within and across disciplines.
