Colleague Celia Popovic of York University in Ontario, Canada, has come up with a great idea – a ‘cookbook’ of teaching and learning ideas, contributed by folks responding to her email invitation via some listservs. Each one is created in brief (a bit like a recipe card), and gives you all the ingredients and methods need to ‘whip up’ and serve some new ideas in the classroom. Check it out at http://teachingcommons.yorku.ca/educational-developers-cookbook/
This was a session I led at the 2016 Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) conference in London, Ontario. As I was modelling actual teaching of the first class in a course, I gave out a syllabus, and homework (see below).
Here are some follow-up resources to explore (for those who took part in the session – thanks for choosing it – this was the homework!)
Watch for an upcoming publication (fingers crossed). I shall post it here.
For further exploration Here is a file you can download, called For further exploration. It includes URLs used in the slides for the Urban Wildlife course, and additional links I thought you might enjoy. Just click on each link to get to the website. Enjoy!
Join me for a week-long (one 1-hour class each weekday) course at UBC, Point Grey campus as part of the Ageless Pursuits series.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here's an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,800 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 30 trips to carry that many people.
