Teaching Commons

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.

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).

To learn more, read A Framework for Engaged Teaching at York: Moving Towards Evidence-Driven Practice.

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.

To get you started, watch this short video for an overview of what to expect when teaching and learning remotely. Make sure to check out our support page to learn about all the support available.
