Make Technology Your Best Teaching Friend: Tools & Techniques for Online Teaching and Learning

January 19, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This event is part of the TA Institute, taking place from January 16–19, 2023.

Eligibility: The TA Institute is open to all undergraduate TAs, graduate students who are interested in teaching, and all graduate student TAs. This session is not open to general undergraduate students, post-doctoral fellows, staff, or faculty.

As we are moving into an era where technology has become an integral part of our teaching, learning, and everyday life, it might be overwhelming to identify the best way to create an active learning environment for our “tech-savvy” learners in virtual, hybrid, or in-person classrooms. In this workshop, you will explore the various elements and applications of active learning, and create an adaptable “master resource” of the different online teaching tools & instruments that you can utilize in your different teaching settings to match your learners’ needs!


  • Tala Maragha, PhD Student, Department of Oral Health Sciences, Faculty of Dentistry
