About Envision YU

Welcome to Envision YU, an open educational resource to support higher-ed students' development of important skills including teamwork, self-regulation, reflection, and transfer of knowledge.  

These learning resources are designed to be practical and easy to implement in a classroom setting. Instructors may download and use all resources as-is or tailor them to their course or program. 


Envision YU was generously supported by the Academic Innovation Fund through the Office of the Associate Vice President of Teaching and Learning, York University.
