You want to provide your students with research and writing resources, or maybe help students film and edit a video for an upcoming assignment. But, you don’t have time to gather all these resources together when you are busy delivering core course content. This is the impetus for The Learning Portal, a collaboration between Ontario college libraries, several Ontario college learning centres, and the Ontario Colleges Library Service. This innovative project aims to provide open learning resources and services for Ontario’s college students, as well as provide consistent library and learning centre support for faculty to use with their students. The Portal will also support partnerships with OntarioLearn and eCampusOntario.
The Learning Portal also includes a Faculty Toolkit with many resources for faculty, including resources for AODA and Copyright compliance, integrating indigenous topics into your courses, and tips for finding, adapting or creating Open Educational Resources. Humber Librarian Caleb Domsy has been a part of The Learning Portal team from the beginning, as Co-Chair developer of the Research Hub. Attend this workshop to learn about what the portal can do for you and your students. Check out The Learning Portal website before the workshop.
