Virtual Resources for Faculty & Staff

In light of COVID-19, CBU’s Human Resources Department continues to operate remotely. You can contact HR at any time via email by using the Employee Directory. During these unprecedented and uncertain times, CBU has also compiled an extensive list of Virtual Mental Health Resources to provide ongoing support.

Online Teaching and Learning

 The Centre for Teaching and Learning has collected materials, techniques and advice regarding the design and implementation of an effective and engaging online course. If you are looking for guidance during the design of your online course, please consult the resources located on the CTL’s MyCBU Intranet page. Here you will find:

  • Documentation and App Walkthroughs
  • External Online Teaching and Learning Resources
  • CTL Online Teaching and Learning Strategies

For questions and topics not covered, please contact our Lead Educational Developer, Terry MacDonald.

Podcast: Beyond The Class

Beyond the Class is a podcast series created by CBU's Centre for Teaching and Learning that focuses on techniques, tools and research that drive innovative teaching and learning in online environments. In each episode, a member of the CTL interviews a guest about a specific aspect of the online education sector with the aim to shed light on best practices, special considerations and challenges specific around virtual teaching and learning. With each 30 minute episode, we hope faculty at both Cape Breton University and beyond come away with a better understanding of how they can design and implement a more effective and rewarding online learning experience for their students.

  • Beyond the Class is available on the MyCBU Intranet, Apple Podcasts, and Spotify.
