Faculty Hub website is live

The Faculty Hub is part of a plan to re-imagine faculty professional development at Dawson.  It unites Communities of Practice, the Office of Academic Development, Human Resources and Information Systems and Technology to promote evidence-based pedagogical practices that engage students and help to develop the Dawson Graduate Profile outcomes.

“I would like to express my appreciation to Julia Lijerón of the Office of Academic Development (OAD) and her team –  Einat Idan (OAD), Azra Khan (HR), Rafael Scapin (IST) and Anne Piggott (OAD) – for their vision, sustained efforts and dedication to the planning and development of the Hub,” Academic Dean Diane Gauvin wrote in an email to staff on Jan. 16. “Under Julia’s leadership, and with the collaboration of faculty, the Hub is now a key resource for faculty professional development.”

Feedback from consultations with faculty and academic administrators yielded a number of themes of interest and importance. The workshops offered by the Faculty Hub are generally associated with one of the following series:

  • Learning to Learn
  • Learning Technologies
  • Foundations of College Teaching
  • Assessment
  • Student-centred Teaching
  • New Faculty Integration
  • Special Topics… such as experiential Learning, e-portfolios, Living Campus, etc.
