Freedom on Brightspace Means That You Can Teach with a Fork or a Spoon – it’s up to you

Within this seminar Professor Shaun Iles and Professor David Wearing of Mohawk College will discuss their very different approaches to online and blended learning. Shaun Iles is a proponent of online delivery and utilizes online materials and Brightspace tools extensively in the delivery of his courses. David on the other hand, is a traditional “chalk and talk” professor who is slowly opening up to using online tools and resources in his classes. This webinar will focus on the transition from f2f delivery to blended and online delivery, aiming to bring light to the fact that there are many avenues you can take to build a pedagogically sound delivery within Brightspace regardless of your history and comfort zones in education.
