Flexible & Online Teaching Group
  • Are you teaching an online or mixed mode course this fall?
  • Interested in more support, or in learning from others, perhaps as a weekly chat group, a book club, a community of practice or workshops?

If yes, come help shape this group! This session is your opportunity to share questions and ideas for effective, engaged and learning centred teaching through flexible and online formats. You will come away with new connections and inspiration, and be able to sign up for professional development opportunities with others who teach online in the fall.

Facilitators: Barb Mathieson & Bettina Boyle

Workshops for Department

Sparkshops – On Demand Mini Workshops

Sparkshops are on demand mobile mini-workshops, facilitated by CTE or a CTE faculty associate. Sparkshops take place during department meetings, faculty meetings or other teaching related gatherings.

The intention of the Sparkshops is to stimulate exploration and departmental conversations around teaching and learning. Each session offers:

  • An introduction to a specific evidence-based instructional practice or teaching technique
  • Examples of applications in the classroom
  • Reflection on how and why to implement this technique

Current Sparkshop Topics Include:

  • Using Formative Assessment to Gauge Student Learning in the Classroom
  • Easy Active Learning Strategies
  • Rubrics in a Flash: A Tool for Students and Teachers
  • Engaging students with In-Class Online Quizzes
  • Virtual Coaching hours: An alternative to Traditional Office Hours
  • Powerful Questions for Deeper Thinking and Better Classroom Discussions

While each of our Sparkhops above are designed with CapU faculty in mind, we would like to acknowledge Boise State University Center for Teaching and Learning as the inspirer and originator of the concept.

Capilano University is named after Chief Joe Capilano, an important leader of the Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh) Nation of the Coast Salish people. We respectfully acknowledge that our campuses are located on the territories of the Lil’wat, Musqueam, Sechelt (shíshálh), Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
