Welcome to the Faculty of Health. Through our five degree programs – Kinesiology & Health Science, Psychology, Nursing, Health Studies (Informatics, Management and Policy) and Global Health – our commitment to excellence is demonstrated through our professors who are nationally and internationally recognized experts in their fields; through our leading edge research; and through community partnerships to improve health outcomes both locally and globally. In addition, students benefit from learning opportunities that go beyond the classroom to include experiential education in a range of settings from laboratories to sports fields and with community partners including hospitals, clinics, schools, health and recreation centres.
This is an intensive workshop by the Teaching Commons to get you started designing or updating your course. We take a hands-on approach as we learn, discover, and discuss principles of inclusive course design, assessment and feedback, active learning and engagement strategies, and provide you with the resources you need to design great courses.
All sessions will run from 9:30am to 3:00pm. *We will break for 1 hour for lunch.

Integrating Experiential Education into Your Course
The EE workshops are designed to support faculty who wish to incorporate Experiential Education into their teaching, either in the classroom or in the community. This session combines the content of Introduction to Experiential Education and Experiential Education: Reflection and Assessment.
In the first half of the workshop, we will define EE and its three foci in the context of York, discuss the theory informing EE, and consider the critical role of structured reflection in experiential education. In the second half, we will brainstorm ideas for reflective activities and consider how to evaluate experiential learning. The workshop will be delivered via presentations, videos and hands-on activities designed to help participants develop an EE course or course activity that includes reflective learning and its assessment, for both in-class and community focused EE
This workshop will run on Thursday, August 9, 2018 from 10am-3pm in room DB 1014. Please note the lunch will not be provided.
