Welcome to the seventy-third issue of The LTO Best Practices. Throughout the year, the Learning & Teaching Office spotlights a timely topic in education. This August, our topic is "The First Day of Class".
This issue will serve as supplement to our New Faculty Orientation. We hope these resources and best practices will help new and returning faculty smooth their transition into the classroom.
Check out our page of Teaching Tips handouts for more downloadable documents on a variety of teaching topics.
We have gathered the following best practices for the first day of class from resources found on the LTO website.
There are many opportunities for professional development in teaching at Ryerson. Check the LTO website regularly – we have many great programs to assist you in your teaching that run throughout the year including:
The DMP offers two-hour introductory sessions covering the basics tools needed to run your course in D2L as well as sessions covering more advanced topics. In addition, troubleshooting drop-in clinics are available on Wednesdays from 2-3PM.
"The LTO Best Practices" is produced monthly by Michelle Schwartz, Instructional Design and Research Strategist at the Learning & Teaching Office of Ryerson University.
Do you have any thoughts, suggestions, or best practices that you would like to see appear in this newsletter? Please send all submissions to email@example.com. We look forward to including your contributions in our next issue!
