College Educator Development Program

Our colleagues in the western region; Conestoga, Fanshawe, Lambton, Mohawk, St. Clair and Niagara have developed six online learning modules. These are the online version of their College Educator Development Program (link) and are being made available to us under a creative commons license. These modules are intended to provide individual professors with opportunities to gain competency in, or brush up on, areas of teaching practice that are common to educators across professions and disciplines.

Each module is 5 or 6 hours of work.
