Target Activities

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
