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.
Desk Copies of Course Texts
To obtain a desk copy of the course text, contact the administrative support person for your program for information and instructions. Note that there are different processes depending on the program and the publisher. You can find contact information for individual publishers at the Conestoga Bookstore webpage on Publisher Information and Desk Copies.
After watching this video, if you realize that your course is part of the eText program, you may wish to access the links discussed in the video, including
- the Conestoga Bookstore webpage instructions on obtaining an instructor copy of the eText
- A recorded video prepared by the Bookstore explaining how to set up etext delivery within
