In 2011, Contact North | Contact Nord launched the Pockets of Innovation Series focusing on how faculty and instructors, at college and university campuses across Ontario, use online pedagogy, technologies and tools to improve the learning experience for students. The Ontario series has grown to 135 stories, and continues to expand.
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 innovations, the challenges they have encountered and what the have learned with public colleges and universities in Ontario, as well as colleagues around the world.
Contact North | Contact Nord subsequently launched the Cross Canada and International Pockets of Innovation series, focusing again on how faculty and instructors are using online pedagogies and resources to improve learning experiences for their students.
The key feature of the Ontario, Cross Canada and International Pockets of Innovation series is the willingness of faculty and instructors to share their experiences with their colleagues around the world.
