2016-17 Issue is now avaialble online. Print copies will arrive in departments shortly.
We recently added a module to Moodle, that allows you to provide Turnitin assigments directly in Moodle. The tool is availalbe when you add an activity or resource. Once added the tool allows instructors to setup assigments that generate originality reports, and allows instructors to mark using Turnitin's feedback studio options.
To learn more please contact Brad Reamsbotom in the Teaching Centre.
If you are using iClicker this year in your course and have yet to contact the Teaching Centre to get setup your iClicker/Moodle integration, please contact Brad Reamsbottom for assistance.
ShopTalks, Talking About Teaching and other events will begin populating our events page. Be sure to visit for the latest offerings from the Teaching Centre.
