Great Ideas for Teaching (GIFT) 2020 | October 14 & October 15
The Centre for Teaching & Learning (CTL) welcomes and invites your virtual participation in Great Ideas for Teaching (GIFT), October 14-15, 2020. Whether online or in physically distanced classrooms/labs, teachers (and students) everywhere continue to face new "opportunities" to grow their teaching (and learning) practices. This year’s GIFT focuses on sharing ideas, information, and approaches we’re using in our current learning environments that can be adapted by others - tweak by tiny tweak - to support students, and each other, through Winter 2021 and beyond. Join us if you looking for great ideas that help us collaborate, be more supportive, caring, inclusive, and innovative in our teaching practice.
