Faculty Strategies for Supporting Students in a Multicultural Classroom

Strategies for Supporting Students in Online Learning

  1. Supporting Student Learning Online: Cognitive Load:  This infographic provides strategies for presenting information in ways that promote optimal learning.
  2. Online Learning: Supporting Student Metacognition and Self-Regulation:  Online learning requires students to develop effective skills in regulating their learning processes.  This infographic provides practical strategies for supporting students in developing these skills. 

Support for Assignments and Rubrics

Writing assignments for an online learning environment can be challenging.  Without the opportunity to explain the assignment to students face to face, the written assignment instructions become even more important.  One of the best ways to refine assignments to promote student success is to work with a colleague outside of your discipline.  Learning Strategists can help you to formulate your assignment instructions and rubrics to be accessible for students. Please reach out to the Learning Centre

Incorporate Learning Strategies into Your Course

In an online learning environment, providing specific information about how to learn can support student success.  The Learning Centres have resources that you can embed into your Moodle site. 

Request Course-Specific Support

Do you have a need for course-specific support this semester? Please reach out to the Learning Centre

Refer a Student

From time to time, you may wish to refer students to a Learning Strategist or Peer Tutor. Students do not require a referral to visit the Learning Centre, but some may feel more comfortable contacting the centre with this guidance from their Instructor.  Please note that Learning Centre staff will not inform faculty of student visits unless signed permission is obtained from the student.
