Professional Learning Fellowships

OISE Continuing and Professional Learning (OISE CPL) is currently recruiting Organizational Development Consultants to support the online delivery of our Professional Learning Fellowship programs (PLFs) as Sessional Facilitators.



Ideal for experienced professionals or teams, OISE CPL PLFs provide a unique opportunity for Fellows (Learners) to anchor in a self-designated project, with access to sector leaders, curated resources, and the support, scaffolding, and rigor they’ll need to build contextual insight and work through an organizational proposal, initiative, or implementation plan. 

 Over 14 weeks, Fellows will work with an Organization & Talent Development Facilitator and Experts-In-Residence, chosen for their relevant subject matter expertise, who will share insights and guide the learning process.
