T&L Newsletter | October 2022
Schulich T&L Newsletter

Instructors are now well into their first full term back. We’re seeing a lot of excitement to be back on campus. We are also seeing instructors bringing the lessons they have learned from teaching online into the classroom, for example, allowing students to complete assessments on their laptops. Schulich’s learning tools continue to evolve. Canvas’ new comment library allows instructors to save and re-apply feedback across assignments and courses. The CITE office continues to collaborate with the SCTE and the Schulich community to offer training and workshops for instructors, including the upcoming workshop on Creating Diverse, Equitable and Welcoming Learning Environments offered by the Committee for Equity and Community.

Our hope is that this newsletter provides you with resources and support to help guide and inspire your teaching through the rest of the term and beyond.

If at any point you require further assistance, reach out at CITE@schulich.yorku.ca).
