We're here to help.


What’s happening right now:

UWindsor's Fall 2020 courses will be mostly online. See President Gordon's memo and video messages on the path toward returning to on-campus teaching and learning.

Our team, along with our colleagues in the Centre for Teaching & Learning and Information Technology Services, will continue to offer training, workshops, and best practices for transitioning your teaching to an online format.

Where you can offer support:

Windsor is fortunate to have a large number of our faculty who have taught online courses, or who use Blackboard extensively in their regular teaching. At this time, we are asking for faculty who are willing to help support our community to  sign up  to provide additional help as a resource with your departments. We know this is asking a lot when you will also be moving your own teaching to this new format, but your lived experience will be extremely valuable to your colleagues. Please sign up here:

Thank you for your patience and help during this difficult period. You can contact us any time if you have questions or suggestions, or if you need help.   
We look forward to hearing from you.
