Technology-enabled teaching

FCDC supports faculty in the creation of technology-enabled teaching and learning. This ranges from hybrid courses that combine face-to-face and online components to fully online courses. We provide training for and facilitation of Canvas, OCAD U’s learning management system, as well as other technological pedagogies that support student learning in and out of the classroom.

For more information on how technology can support your teaching or for a course consultation, please contact Travis Freeman at tfreeman@ocadu.ca.

For information effective use of Canvas in your teaching, please see the Canvas Guide for Faculty (Canvas course).

FCDC, IT Services, and the Library support the campus-wide commitment to expanding e-learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students.
