Laurier programs highlighted in innovative teaching report
Communications, Public Affairs & Marketing
Two Laurier programs are highlighted in a new report on innovative teaching practices at Ontario universities, released today by the Council of Ontario Universities (COU).
The report, called Beyond the Sage on the Stage: Innovative and Effective Teaching and Learning at Ontario Universities, is intended to become part of an ongoing dialogue on innovative teaching in Ontario's post-secondary education sector.
In addition to examples of innovative approaches, the COU report also invites Ontario’s 15,000 university faculty and many thousands of teaching staff to submit their own stories of the innovative ways they engage students in learning. These stories will become an ongoing resource for the university sector and will be available on the COU website, where numerous stories are already posted.
The two Laurier programs highlighted in the report include a Faculty of Music e-portfolio that allows students to capture their work digitally and review and critique it in a way that was not possible in the past; and the International Business Concentration program that provides fourth-year business students with an immersive and integrated educational experience focused on international business, which includes a two-week study tour.
Other innovative teaching practices at Laurier were recently highlighted on the website of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada. Click here to view these stories.
