Indigenous Education Resources

The Indigenous Education Resources are intended to help inform, inspire, and support professional development in Indigenous education. This initiative aligns with the implementation of the Werklund School of Education Indigenous Strategy.

COVID-19 Teaching Questions

Resources are available for in-person teaching, such as the Teaching & Learning Resource Guide and a COVIDSafe Slide deck (PowerPoint) that can be used in the classroom to address questions. There has also been an updated FAQ providing guidance to prepare for the resumption of face-to-face instruction as it begins on February 28.


SoTL Grants & Awards

The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) integrates teaching, learning and research. Faculty seed grants and University grants are available each year for SoTL projects. Faculty awards and University awards are awarded each year to celebrate excellence in teaching and learning.  Our next call for proposals will occur in Fall 2022.

Teaching Assistant Preparation Program

This program provides supports for graduate students and post-doctoral scholars interested in developing skills to serve as teaching assistants and sessional instructors. Participants also develop a teaching dossier of their teaching practice.

ePortfolio/ Dossier

Whether creating a digital ePortfolio or a teaching dossier, you are assembling a collection of artefacts that highlight teaching and learning achievements. ePortfolios are often required when applying for teaching positions and dossiers are required for tenure and promotion and teaching awards.

Online Pedagogy Series

Join us for professional learning opportunities and earn a badge for selected sessions! Our series currently focus on Indigenous Education, Assessment in a Digital Age, and Open Education. Pop-up sessions are offered monthly on various topics and our vignettes can be accessed for more information about innovations in teaching and learning at the Werklund School of Education.
