Reading Time: 2 minutes

When you begin teaching at Conestoga, a key resource is your Course Outline, upon which all course development is based. Course development includes the creation of aligned lesson plans, course materials, and evaluations. The course outline also informs the Instructional Plan which is posted in your eConestoga course shell and guides course delivery.

Very often course materials include eTexts, a populated course shell, apps to engage students, and library links. View this video learning pathway to confirm where and how to access these typical resources.

You will receive specific information about existing course materials and assessments through your Chair, Program Manager or Coordinator.
