McGill University - Focus on Teaching
SUMMER READING

Teaching Resources

The summer months are an excellent time to reflect on your teaching and to prepare for the upcoming year. Teaching and Learning Services has curated teaching resources on a wide variety of topics, from assessing learning, facilitating discussions, to using technology in support of learning, and more.

Being a supervisor

You and each of your supervisees are in a professional, often near-peer relationship. The characteristics of this relationship affect your job satisfaction and the educational experiences of your supervisees. Its qualities, styles, and interactions can be diverse, but evidence and experience support some practices more than others.
RESOURCE OF THE WEEK

Teaching for Learning @ McGill University Blog

Join McGill faculty, staff, and students in a conversation about higher education. Read the latest post on an Engineering professor's experience running a peer review and peer assessment exercise for 500 first-year Engineering students.

Summer 2015 myCourses minor upgrade

A minor upgrade of the myCourses Learning Management System will take place on Monday, July 13, from 1 am to noon. During this time, myCourses will be completely unavailable to instructors and students. If you are using myCourses this summer, please ensure you do not schedule any assignments or quizzes for that day. The upgrade will bring some minor improvements, such as a simpler process to copy courses.

Fall 2015 Checklists and Support for Instructors

Looking for help with myCourses and other teaching technologies? 

Teaching and Learning Services offers one-on-one consultations and group workshops on myCourses, student response systems (clickers), active learning classrooms, and classroom audiovisual technology. Request a consultation.
Focus on Teaching is taking a break and will resume in August for the 2015-2016 year. In the meantime, Teaching and Learning Services is open all summer; please feel free to contact us at any time. Thank you for an excellent year!
