Abstract

This paper will report on a project that is currently underway in the Faculty of Education at a large Canadian university in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The main objective for this project is to provide a web-based professional development tool for faculty that includes practical resources for faculty seeking ways to make effective use of learning technologies to enhance learning environments. The model, which includes a suite of online tools and resources, integrates ideas both from people in the faculty and from other Education institutions as to different ways to enhance teaching and learning. Faculty members have opportunities to engage in hands-on learning about active student-centred learning approaches as well as learning about effective use of technology for transforming their courses along these lines.
