Welcome to the Teaching Commons
Develop your teaching in new and unimagined ways
At the Teaching Commons, we provide leadership in the pursuit of engaged teaching practices centred on the student learning experience.
Each Faculty and School has a dedicated Educational Developer liaison. Find your liaison and learn more about our team.
What is engaged teaching at York?
Because teaching practice can take various forms ranging in aims and methodology, it leads to questions on how to productively describe and engage with it for a variety of purposes (e.g., enhancing student learning, developing an informative teaching dossier, or applying for teaching related awards and grants).
Need help with remote teaching?
Going Remote is a Teaching Commons’ resource designed to provide options and support for teaching remotely based on your circumstances and the needs of your students.
As your remote teaching journey continues, you may find this guiding document for Preparing for Teaching Online helpful. You can also explore resources outlining Alternative Assessments for Remote Teaching and our Open Book Exams Toolkit. You can also reflect on our tips for Alleviating Student Anxiety.
