Since the COVID-19 pandemic sent Brock University’s classes online in March 2020, the Centre for Pedagogical Innovation (CPI) has played a key role in supporting faculty, part-time instructors and teaching assistants.
Now, with about 60 per cent of classes planned for on-campus delivery for the Fall 2021 Term, a new instructor resource has been launched which is meant to help provide guidance as instructors head back into the classroom amid ongoing public health restrictions.
“We wanted to create a resource that would help instructors know what to expect around logistics in the classroom,” says Madelyn Law, Associate Vice-Provost, Teaching and Learning. “From the point they leave their office or arrive on campus until they leave the classroom, what do they need to think about and know?”
Found on the CPI website, the Flexible Teaching and Learning resource includes tips and ideas, answers to common questions, examples from Brock instructors and more.
“We really want to help instructors transition back to on-campus teaching in a safe and positive way,” Law says.
She is also encouraging faculty, part-time instructors and teaching assistants who either want to share their ideas or ask questions to contact email@example.com
