Two events will showcase York University’s expertise in teaching and learning. The first event is the Experiential Education Celebration on Thursday, Nov. 7 followed by an eLearning Celebration on Thursday, Dec. 5. Both events will take place at the Keele Campus.

Organized by the Office of the Associate Vice-President Teaching & Learning, the Experiential Education Celebration will highlight diverse examples of classroom-focused, community-focused and work-focused experiential education. The eLearning Celebration will highlight examples of pedagogical approaches using and incorporating technology to enhance student learning and the student experience. The event will also provide a chance to network with faculty members who have developed and facilitated these opportunities for their students.

Both celebrations offer opportunities for full- and part-time faculty and teaching assistants to share and learn more about the variety of ways experiential education and technology enhanced learning can be integrated into courses through stories of examples, lessons learned and important campus resources available.

In addition to these celebrations, the formal community call for submissions to the Academic Innovation Fund will be released in YFile on Monday, Nov. 4. The AIF funding supports initiatives that advance York’s strategic priorities in relation to teaching, learning and the student experience.
