1. Tie in with Academic Relation's "New Faculty" orientation. I have a query to Sue Roppel about this from her side and the "New Faculty community" we've been developing.
2. A topic or sharing of resources about what's available at SFU. I did a presentation last year on:
A Richer Multifaceted Learning Experience:
Using available SFU resources
Learners benefit from different types of learning activities and an integrated approach to course components. Various technological resources exist at SFU that can be used to support richer and more active learning and a sense of community among learners. This presentation focuses on available resources and uses an existing SFU course and its instructional objectives as an example. Time will be available for discussion and sharing of ideas and experiences.
It was well received in that no one who attended was aware of all the possible technological resources available to instructors (i.e. through the LIDC, ACS, and library) to aid them in developing richer learning experiences for their students at SFU. I have a .ppt and supplemental information with links which I could update for SCOPE if it's of interest. I'm also working with Cindy on something like this for the new faculty in Health.
3. Tie in with the LIDC website. I know there's not going to be much available on the site yet in terms of resources, but we could point to what's there and also set up an area to share resources within this community. Perhaps we can then take the resources from SCOPE and put them in the LIDC website in the future as well?
That's all for now...
