Offered annually at the Brantford and Waterloo campuses, the day-long event provides an opportunity for the Laurier community to come together and network, share best practices, showcase teaching innovations, examine instructional challenges, and explore new developments in teaching and learning.
Laurier CoPs provide a forum for educators from multiple disciplines and academic support units to connect throughout the term about teaching and learning issues and topics of personal and shared interest.
The four-day institute and one-day workshop offer a hands-on
introduction to course design. Both programs facilitate application of a set of course design tools that
are practical and conceptual in form, promote a learner/ing-focused approach to
course design and teaching, and provide a forum to network and share ideas,
challenges, and strategies about teaching, learning and design. The four-day
institute offers a more intensive experience and addresses a greater
variety of topics than the one-day offering.
