Learn to Ask “Why”
“Everything is theory driven,” says Matthew Christian, a facilitator in our Adult Learning and Development program who teaches the course Online Learning Environments. “These are not purely training courses. It’s not about pushing a button, it’s about asking why that button is there in the first place.”
He marvels at what our learners take away from these programs. “I feel they come out of it better able to be adaptable and resilient. They have a growth mindset about approaching new things and technology.”
Relevant and Connected Programs
OISE CPL programs are grounded in theory and relevant to today’s education environments and workplaces. “They’re so well connected to real-world application,” says Cory Coletta, a student services leader who facilitates a course in the Serving Students in Higher Education program. “They’re connected to what people are experiencing in their jobs.” He’s seen people from a wide range of professional backgrounds apply their CPL skills and knowledge to their individual sectors.
While Cory has taught elsewhere, OISE CPL stands out for him as a place where the courses are taught in a fluid, flexible way that blends evidence and rigour with adapting to learners.
