At the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV), we learn and teach by design in active learning environments not limited to face-to-face pedagogy, hybrid learning, or fully online education (“Hybrid Learning at UFV: Maximizing Space and Pedagogical Resources,” Igobwa & Wideman, 2019). These three modes of student-centred learning are facilitated in collaboration with the learners and educators while drawing dialectically from our “Five Goals for the Education Plan 2016-2020 (https://ufv.ca/media/assets/provost/education-plans/UFV-Education-Plan-Goals.pdf ).”
Our proposal falls under the conference theme “Celebrating Teaching” and the sub-section “Exploring the institutional commitment to teaching excellence.” Course review is a collaborative effort between those involved in learning and teaching and our Teaching and Learning Centre. “Check Under the Hood” is an initiative that supports faculty in reviewing courses in a collegial manner while using an “appreciative inquiry” perspective (Appreciative Inquiry in Higher Education: A Transformative Force, Jeanie Cockell and Joan McArthur-Blair, 2012). And this is our commitment to nurture teaching excellence at UFV.
During our presentation, we will discuss how faculty receive and review our recommendations/feedback and the recommendations that they elect to adapt for their course/s. Additionally, we will highlight selected “before” and “after” courses to demonstrate this process. We will collegially solicit your feedback as we endeavour to further improve our course review strategy.
