International Faculty Toolkit
In October 2020, the International Faculty Lead team launched the International Faculty Toolkit, a collection of resources in MyCanvas to support faculty teaching in diverse learning environments. It contains resources about:
- Cultural dimensions and theories
- International student journey
- Intercultural communication
- Inclusive pedagogy
- And more
The Toolkit is open to anyone who wishes to learn more about the diverse learning environment! To provide an opportunity to track professional learning, four modules contain completion badges! These badges are earned through reading the content, completion of quizzes and submission of module surveys. The badges are completely optional and the content can be accessed without earning badges as well. Enrol today!
