Target Activities for the ALOR project:
1. University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) – Department of Psychology
- Enhancements to Digital LabCoat and mTuner tools to improve integration with existing UofT learning systems and provide improved faculty and student user support
- Provide documentation in the form of manuals and online video support that will allow anyone to use these tools effectively across a variety of course contexts
- Focus for course redesign will be introduction of online components into first and second year courses
2. University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) – Language Studies
- Increase capacity for online learning to optimize inclusion of active, student-centred language learning.
- Extend media integration activities, contextualizing language learning in relation to other discipline areas or cultural settings.
- Develop asynchronous individual and collaborative learning activities that allow introduction of hybrid learning models within the program
3. Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering (FASE) – Materials Science
- Design hybrid learning modules for re-use within introductory courses related to chemistry and material compounds
- Enhance existing digital materials for Tensile Testing, Crystal Structure, Thermodynamics, and Energy Conversion table-top lab activities
- Develop lab activities that use online and portable materials, thereby decreasing the demand for dedicated undergraduate laboratory space
4. Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing – MN – Health Systems Leadership and Administration Program
- Develop pilot hybrid/online component strategies for the MN/MHSc program
- Explore case-based learning and guided tutorial formats
- Support development and use of multimodal reusable content
- Leverage video and screencast strategies to allow for active learning in the virtual classroom context.
5. Faculty of Arts and Science (FAS) – Human Biology Program
- Design of active learning activities for synchronous online learning using webinar environments.
- Mapping of neuroscience learning concepts to improve curriculum design.
- Set up active learning media presentation studio to support development and delivery of online active learning modules targeted at identified key concepts
