York University has launched a website that will enhance the institution’s commitment to excellence in teaching, learning and the student experience.
Developed by the Office of the Associate vice-president responsible for teaching and learning, the website features innovative videos, news and updates relating to how the university is pushing the boundaries of teaching through innovative delivery methods and unique learning settings.
“In my role, I am very fortunate to be in contact with many faculty members who are passionate about teaching,” said Sue Vail, the university’s associate vice president of teaching and learning. “With the support of these colleagues, we have undertaken a number of initiatives to raise the profile of teaching and learning at York. The embedding of teaching and learning information on the York University home page signals our commitment to providing high quality student learning environments.”
The website offers a wide and rich array of information about key initiatives in teaching and learning, including initiatives that advance technology enhanced learning and experiential education and also profiles the university’s award-winning faculty.
In addition, it provides information about the university’s internship and placement opportunities that allows students to develop competencies and skills in workplace environments and a full overview of how the university is using blended and fully online approaches to make learning more accessible and adaptable to students’ multidimensional lives.
Visitors to the site can learn about how York University’s students have the opportunity to connect course material with experiences in the community.
