Support & Resources

York University provides a wealth of resources to assist educators in developing and implementing eLearning, Experiential Education and Student Experience projects.

The Teaching Commons

The Teaching Commons provides advice and professional development to faculty members on effective pedagogy and good practice, developing course learning outcomes and using eLearning strategies to enhance learning. Courses to inform about the use of eLearning are available in a number of formats to faculty members and may be customized to meet the needs of specific Faculties.

Learning Technology Services

Learning Technology Services (LTS) provides assistance to faculty members who are interested in using technology to support, supplement or enhance their teaching and research. As a central support unit, LTS works closely with the Teaching Commons and with local Faculty technical support units to coordinate services. LTS services range from individual and project consultation to delivering workshops on implementing technologies into courses (e.g. Adobe Connect, Blog, Lecture Recording, Moodle, Personal Response System (PRS, Clickers), Surveys, Turnitin, Wiki).

York University Libraries

The York University Libraries provide support to faculty members for incorporating eResources (i.e. readings) into their online environments such as Moodle. Librarians also collaborate with faculty to ensure that students have access to online tools that help them learn how to find, evaluate and use information in their course work. The Libraries work together with LTS and the Teaching Commons to provide dynamic, course specific library resources.

University Information Technology

University Information Technology (UIT) provides a variety of computing services and facilities that aid teaching at York.

The Career Centre

The Career Centre provides extensive support for recognized internship programs and, more recently, has been supporting the development and implementation of the Faculty of Science’s co-op pilot project. The Career Centre supports students in finding and securing meaningful internship and co-op opportunities and in articulating the skills and experiences gained from these workplace exposures.

Talent Acquisition and Development (TAD)

Talent Acquisition and Development provides services in the following areas:  Workforce and Organizational Planning; Sourcing; Talent, Acquisition and Onboarding; Talent Development and Competency Management; and Succession and Transition Management.

For AIF Project Champions TAD will assist in the development of effective project plans and deliverables to ensure objectives are met. TAD will also provide coaching support to the Project Champion through the AIF Project cycle on: the change process, project planning and evaluation as requested. All AIF Category 1 Projects have a designated AIF Change Coach.
