Teaching @ Georgian

This four-module hybrid orientation series has been designed for faculty who are looking for support in preparing for the winter semester.

These modules provide direction, where to start, how to capture your students interest from the very beginning. As a hybrid series, each module kicks off with a WebEx session (90 minutes) and takeaway activities to complete prior to the next module. The modules build on each other and as such, registration in individual modules is discouraged.



Module 1:

    • Orientation to WebEx
      (plus asynchronous activities)
    • Orientation to Blackboard
      (plus asynchronous activities)

Academic Development Program (ADP)

The Academic Development Program is designed to provide professional development support to newly hired full-time faculty, to assist in the transition from subject matter expert to professional teacher. Throughout the program, we engage in intentional instructional design and reflection on teaching practices, with the goal of establishing a fruitful, fulfilling career path with the groundwork laid for continual learning and improvement. The ADP provides a supportive environment in which we can explore new tools and strategies, grapple together with the complexities and challenges of teaching, and celebrate and learn from each other’s successes.

This program is arranged through your Associate Dean and/or Dean.
