Online Learning at U of T

Celebrating CTSI’s 10th anniversary with a countdown of teaching and learning initiatives and partnerships at U of T.

There is more to online learning than simply putting a course or resources online. CTSI has collaborated with a number of groups, divisions, and individuals to provide guidance and pedagogical support for learning that occurs outside the physical classroom. Whether is it an entirely online class or a course with online components, CTSI supports faculty, graduate students and educational developers in their work.

  • CTSI, in particular the Academic and Collaborative Technologies (ACT) Support team, works with ITS Online Learning Strategies (OLS) on a number of initiatives, including projects funded by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development and eCampusOntario, and they support the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) at U of T, both in progress and in-development. Learn more about OLS’s initiatives and resources on the Online Learning site.
  • The OLS team also regularly contributes to CTSI programming, like the Course Design Day: Finding the Right “Mix” for Engaging Your Learners that explores the process of implementing hybrid learning into courses.
  • The TATP series of online training modules for first contract teaching assistants:
    • Laboratories/Practicals
    • Policies & Procedures for Teaching Assistants at U of T
    • Skill Development: Supporting Student Writing
    • Skill Development: Critical Reading and Reflection
  • You can also register for online Quercus training webinars, whether you are interested in learning the basics of building your Quercus course or want to explore more of the platform’s features.
