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

How Your Organization Can Benefit from Measuring Social LearningAre you measuring the social learning in your organization? Social learning is the theory that individuals learn from each other, via observation, imitation, and modelling. This includes anything related to social media and its viability for usage in learning. In this session our presenter, Robin Yap, will help you gain a better understanding of social learning, provide insights on how to measure it in a learning system, and also offer a guide on how to improve it within your organization. Attendees of this session will be given a rubric to measure and track social collaboration dialogue which we’ll show in Brightspace and can be also used independently.
Time: 1:00pm ET
Host(s): Dr. Robin Yap, Managing Partner at the Centre for Social Learning and Research; Sarah Nicholl, Corporate Learning Strategist at D2L
