Leaders Spotlight on Learning

This new playlist provides an opportunity for leaders within Mohawk College to showcase a specific training course from the over 11,000+ courses on Working at Mohawk featuring LinkedIn Learning, Cornerstone Content Anytime, and other providers of asynchronous learning. All courses are under 1 hour in length and focus on ‘hot topics’. There are many curated playlists already available on Working at Mohawk and you can even make your own!

Toby Merritt photoToby Merritt, Director, Accessibility and Testing Services believes that it takes team work to create innovative student services. As part of the Accessible Learning Services team, Toby has dedicated his career to making Mohawk a more accessible place for students to learn.

“I have the amazing privilege of leading both the ALS and Testing Centre teams. As a leader, my primary goal is to ensure each staff member has the opportunity to grow, learn, and know that the work they do helps students with accessibility needs meet their learning objectives. As a Social Worker and Educator, I am very focused on developing innovative ways to support students as they learn and transition to employment. I believe that when we create more accessible learning environments, all members of the Mohawk College community benefit.” ~ Toby

Because Toby knows that innovation can only happen when teams are empowered to think outside the box, and take calculated risks, he enjoyed the LinkedIn Learning Course, Enhancing Team Innovation. Highlights from this one-hour course involve practical strategies to create innovative teams that are “more than the sum of their parts”, making room for failure, and leveraging roles within teams to better support creativity. As we emerge from the pandemic, innovation will continue to be at the forefront.

Toby encourages you to check out this course for an excellent, quick primer on sparking innovation within your team!
