Cambrian College Teaching and Learning Innovation Hub

What's Up In The Hub?

All on for fall, virtually! We're here to help you with start-up
Hello Cambrian Faculty and Staff!

Welcome to Fall 2020 Startup and a new academic year of teaching and learning. 

The Hub Team and I hope you have had some time for revitalization this summer and feel ready for the return of learners. As we continue to navigate the opportunities and challenges of virtual teaching as part of community safety, the Hub Team is ready to support your teaching and educational technology needs. 

I want to remind you that we welcome two new Hub Team members,
Brian Levac, Graphic Designer, and Krista Ceccolini, Instructional Designer.

They are already making great contributions to course design and learning experiences in partnership with faculty. The full Hub Team with everyone’s contact information can be found at the
Contact Us link on our website.

We have a busy, All on for Fall line-up of support options, professional development sessions, and online, asynchronous resources to help you prepare to launch courses.

During the weeks of August 31 and September 8, Instructional Design and Technology support will be available from 7:30am to 7:30pm. A best-case scenario is to book time with team members or ask a question using the email and someone will respond quickly!

Please don’t hesitate to reach out or check in, we look forward to partnering with you!

~ Jenni, Alison, Brian, Chris, Jeff, Krista, Mel, Rob, and Sarah

Padlet: Engage and Collaborate

We will likely be adding Padlet into our mix of fully supported engagement and collaboration tools this fall.

If you haven’t tried Padlet before, check out the page below. You can sign up for a free account and play around with it before we reach our final decision (some security and accessibility checks are underway). Use your Cambrian address to sign up and whatever you experiment with in the free version will be saved for the enterprise version.
