Welcome to Teaching Commons 

Intended to be “a space to dream big about teaching,” the Teaching Commons supports faculty, instructors, and graduate students in developing and applying innovative and research-based approaches to all areas of teaching and learning:

  • Instructional design
  • Curriculum development
  • Classroom management
  • Educational technology
  • Active learning
  • Experiential education
  • Indigenous curriculum integration
  • And much, much more!

We also curate essential pedagogical resources on these and other teaching-related topics and provide technical support for mycourselink/D2L.

Through workshops, peer-teaching assessments, and individual or small-group consultations, we cultivate excellence and promote diversity, equity, and access within and across Lakehead University’s diverse disciplinary and cultural contexts.

We are here to help . . .

  • Faculty and instructors become even more effective in the classroom (on-campus or online)
  • Graduate students become effective teachers even before they enter a classroom

Call (807.343.8010 ext. 7730), email (teachingcommons@lakeheadu.ca), or stop by (LI 5014) to discuss any of the following:

  • Effective and engaging in-class, online, and blended teaching practices
  • Innovative learning technologies
  • Graduate students' professional development
  • Indigenous and intercultural curriculum
  • The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL)

Let’s “dream big” about teaching together!
