I am excited to share the registration link for the Borealis Summer Institute for Teaching and Learning. The 2020 theme is "Moving Online - Managing the Transition to Remote Course Delivery". This is an event hosted jointly by the four Northern Ontario universities (Algoma University, Lakehead University, Laurentian University, and Nipissing University).

The Borealis Summer Institute for Teaching and Learning will take place 9 am - 5 pm on both Wednesday, August 5th and Thursday, August 6th. All sessions will run as plenaries, so there is no fear of missing something happening concurrently. Sessions will be recorded so as to create a resource for future events.

Session topics include:
*Cultural Intelligence and the implications for online teaching to diverse students
*Reaching Indigenous Learners
*Teaching First-Year classes online
*Experiential Learning online
*How to Engage Online Learners in Authentic Assessment**
*And more...

These will be run as workshops, presentations, panels and round tables. Speakers come from the four host institutions as well external to the group. A finalized agenda will be circulated within the next few days.
