Mandatory Courses for Faculty

Conestoga’s four mandatory courses will provide you with an opportunity to learn more about teaching and learning at Conestoga. If possible, please attend Teaching and Services at Conestoga (EDEV0670) and “Conestoga’s LMS and Technologies for Teaching” (EDEV0660) prior to beginning to teach.

This online micro-credential allows you to engage with colleagues as you learn about Conestoga, our Learning Management System (LMS), and what is expected as you teach and assess in our active, outcomes-based courses. Each of these credits counts towards a Certificate in Post-Secondary Teaching.

These four online credit courses count towards micro-credentials and a certificate in post-secondary teaching. Human Resources at Conestoga requires that all part-time and full-time faculty complete these four mandatory courses prior to the end of their first semester of teaching, and, preferably, prior to starting.

For courses beginning Sept. 1, 2022, part-time faculty are paid $40/hour for each hour dedicated to completing the mandatory courses. Within two months of participation, you will receive a separate employment contract with these funds alongside your pay stub. To be paid the new training rate, you must attend all hours of a course and/or show evidence of completing the work for all hours. Your professor will explain expectations. Note: For courses delivered prior to Sept. 1, 2022, part-time faculty are paid $20/hour.

We’re providing information also available on Conestoga’s Continuing Education website, which you can consult for further offerings. If you have questions on the courses you should be taking, please contact teachingandlearning@conestogac.on.ca.
