Our Shared Plan: Exceptional Student Experience
The first of the five pillars in Dalhousie’s Third Century Promise Strategic Plan represents our commitment to providing exceptional student experiences. In fact, the first action item listed to support this pillar speaks directly to providing excellent online and blended learning opportunities for students. Dalhousie’s eLearning Strategy details our goals and priorities in offering high-quality online and blended instruction, through providing
accessible and flexible learning experiences for diverse learners and supporting faculty in their teaching.
Academic Technology Services (ATS) and the Centre for Learning and Teaching (CLT) Support Model
ATS and CLT work together—and in partnership with the faculties, departments, and individual course instructors—to support online teaching. In addition, the Dalhousie Libraries have course-specific supports, including liaison librarians, subject guides, eReserves, and more. Support for online and blended teaching falls along a spectrum—from the
technological on one end to the pedagogical at the other, with the two intersecting and overlapping.
Academic Technology ServicesATS staff support technical needs, online teaching software, and training on Brightspace and other Dalhousie-supported eLearning tools and technologies. Get in touch with ATS today!
