Save your ol' faves is an initiative to support faculty in saving old favourite teaching materials to a digital form. We convert your out-of-date VHS tapes, acetates used for overhead projectors, or paper resources to a digital format so that they can be stored and shared with students more easily.
Video conferencing is available at Abbotsford campus for internal clients only. The service is offered free of charge during regular office hours. For after-hours and weekend conferencing, charges apply.
A minimum of five days is required to stage video conferencing.
In August, the Teaching and Learning Centre sent out a newsletter with articles relevant to the start of the semester. I made the “first day of class goals” explicit in my course (Best Practices of Teaching and Learning), as a TOD. This served as a “self-check”, but also reminded future educators about the importance of building community and trying to connect with students.
