Do you have a teaching problem to solve?
We’ve all got problems. The Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence and Innovation wants to help you find a solution, at least to your problems of the teaching variety. Their site “provides practical strategies to address teaching problems across the disciplines. These strategies are firmly grounded in educational research and learning principles.” It’s as easy as:
- Identify a problem you encounter in your teaching;
- Identify possible reasons for the problem; and
- Explore strategies to address the problem.
Check out Solve a Teaching Problem, and happy solving!
D2L Thing of the Week: How-to-D2L for Students
Are your students struggling with using D2L? We have the solution! We have created a self-paced course for students on the areas and activities in D2L most relevant to them, as learners at Fleming.
Once your students log in to D2L, by scrolling down the right sidebar, they can access the “How to D2L for Students” course.
After self-registering, students will learn all about navigating your course and viewing course content. There is also a “Student Help – MyCourses (D2L)” link for written help on other D2L topics.
So when your students need help with D2L, remember to mention these resources, available 24/7!
Non-D2L Thing of the Week: Canva
Our snazzy (if we do say so ourselves!) Teaching Hub logos are created using Canva. Canva is a free graphic design tool that you and your students can use. “Its drag and drop functionality enables [teachers and students] to create presentations, posters, one-page documents, and social media posts.” Give it a try and see for yourself!
Have you or one of your students created something beautiful with Canva? Show us that creativity! Tweet it to us, and we’ll retweet it.

Policies & Procedures
Fleming College is committed to providing an environment that encourages all students to learn, create, and share knowledge responsibly, with the highest level of academic integrity.
The Academic Integrity website will provide faculty with information and resources such as:
- Fleming College’s Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure 2-201A;
- Academic integrity violations, categories, and applicable sanctions;
- Online violation reporting form; and
- Education modules and supports available to help students learn about plagiarism and the value in creating their own work (more on that below).
As we know, academic integrity education assists in violation prevention! Faculty members are encouraged to recommend / promote the many amazing academic integrity assistive resources that our Fleming Library offers for students (both in person and online). Students can even book 1:1 appointments with a Library Staff mentor who will guide them through both in-text citations and reference lists using APA, Harvard, CSE, or MLA!
Comments, questions, or concerns about academic integrity at Fleming can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org

Week 8 Professional Learning Options
We have a new format for Week 8 Faculty PD!
Instead of just one day, we will be coordinating various sessions focused on teaching and learning throughout Week 8, and the remainder of the semester. We hope this provides more flexibility for you to participate in some of the other exciting opportunities happening in Week 8 related to strategic planning, accessibility, simulation and other school initiatives.
Look for the suite of offerings, focussed on teaching and learning excellence, to be announced next week here in the Teaching Hub, and via Communications email. The sessions will be 60-90 minutes in length, spread throughout Week 8, and will be offered again in Weeks 9-15 upon request.
Registration will be through the PD calendar in Evolve — participation will become part of the Training Summary in Evolve.
We will bring back the “Teaching and Learning Day” format for intersession. SAVE THE DATE: Wednesday, May 1, 2019.
Faculty wishing to get involved or facilitate a session should e-mail LDSTeam@flemingcollege.ca or drop in to Victoria Maystruk’s office’s – B3 309.
We look forward to Teaching and Learning with you!
