Teaching

The Teaching | Learning Blog

We will feature interviews with teaching award winners, guest posts, re-publications of past “Teacher’s Corner” features from Intersections (formerly Bulletin), and more! This blog is a space where people can share how they’ve grappled with questions of teaching and learning history, the challenges and solutions they’ve come up with, and celebrate their successes. If you or someone you know would like to contribute to this blog, we would be happy to hear from you.  Please email Allyson Stevenson @ teachingblog@cha-shc.ca.  
 
Do you have strong thoughts on the situation and would like to air them in a guest blog post? We’d love to host it.  But watch this space because work on this issue will be ongoing!
 
Please stay tuned for more!
