The Cross Canada Pockets of Innovation showcases a broad range of examples of best practices in online learning from faculty and instructors in post-secondary education from across Canada, outside of Ontario. These descriptions highlight models and resources that can be adapted in many educational settings to improve student success in online, blended and technology-enhanced learning.
In this series, Contact North | Contact Nord features projects with three specific characteristics:
- They represent a new approach.
- They support students.
- The developers are prepared to share their innovation, the challenges they’ve encountered and what they’ve learned with public colleges and universities in Ontario, as well as colleagues around the world.
