Teaching and Learning welcomes members of the UFV community to enter into its “name the space” competition. We are asking you to come up with a name for our new faculty resource / learning centre. The person who provides the winning name will receive an iPad, to be awarded on PD Day, May 2nd. The new faculty space is located in the G building next to the renovated Teaching and Learning Centre. It is considered a liminal space, a place for faculty to relax, learn, and connect with others. It is a space between the familiar and the new. The new space will open March 15 and you are welcome to drop in to get your inspiration.
Enter your submission for our new faculty resource centre.
Save the Date!
All faculty, staff, and administrators are invited to a day of professional development to connect with colleagues, learn tools, tips, and trends in higher ed, and grow UFV towards the future together. Join us May 2, 2017, at the Abbotsford Campus for this amazing day.
The online module, Building Strengths, is now available at http://ufv.ca/buildingstrengths. Created in partnership with Nicola Valley Institute of Technology and UFV, this learning resource looks at how to make the classroom experience more accessible to students. Although it focuses on trades and technology fields, the learning gained from this module is applicable to any subject. It looks at universal design for learning, adapting practical spaces, cultural implications of disability, and inviting success. This module focuses on the whole student and provides strategies and tips for being more inclusive in our instructional practices. Those who complete the module will receive a Letter of Completion from Teaching and Learning that can be used in teaching dossiers.
Teaching & Learning Tool Kit
The University of the Fraser Valley and the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology have put together an Accessibility Tool Kit for faculty and staff to complement the Building Strengths module. This online document is filled with resources and information to assist the learning for students with disabilities. Please download the document to your computer and keep it as a resource to refer to anytime. You can also print it and take it with you.
