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. We also take a distributed approach to Equity, Decolonization, Diversity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (EDDIA)-related work across our team and across our offerings. Read the Teaching Commons Equity, Decolonization, Diversity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (EDDIA) Statement of Practice.
Each Faculty and School has a dedicated Educational Developer liaison. Find your liaison and learn more about our team.
Resources for Flexible Teaching
The Teaching Commons Zoom Helpdesk is available for drop-in Tuesdays & Thursdays, 10am-12pm via Zoom.
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.
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).
