Orientation to Learning Technology (OLT)

What is OLT – Orientation to Learning Technologies?

Looking to use Canvas for the first time? Needing to record a lecture and put it online? Wanting to find out how teaching an online-only class could work for your busy schedule? Find the answers to all of these questions and more at the Orientation to Learning Technologies. This session is highly recommended by the Dean’s office.

The goal of the Orientation is to:

  1. Introduce new instructors to the context of teaching with learning technologies within the Faculty of Education
  2. Provide an opportunity to connect with like-minded peers and share best practices
  3. Provide relevant information on teaching strategies, educational technologies and institutional policies through activities and presentations

This is an informational orientation session containing no dedicated hands-on time. Additional in-depth and hands-on workshops, focusing on specific learning technologies, will be offered throughout the year.
