Over the past few months (speaking from August, 2020) we in eLearning and the Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) have collected many, many resources from BC and beyond related to best practices around teaching and learning online.  This list of resources will be added to and updated (and ultimately a better design to help you find what you are looking for!), so keep coming back.

Have questions or have a resource you would like to see listed here?  Email Emily Schudel, instructional designer in eLearning, Camosun College.
