Mandatory Courses for Faculty

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. 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 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.

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 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.

Below, please find information on how to register and the available sections.
