Usually the pedagogy/ies are chosen based on the intended learning outcomes and aligned with the educators' teaching philosophy. The pedagogy can be thought of as the vehicle to learn. For example, we can help you consider course redesign or pedagogical ideas, create a syllabus, consider integrating the right technology for your teaching and curricular focus, align assignment or projects to your student learning outcomes, suggesting for the develop of assessments and rubrics, review instructional materials, explore online and in-person teaching practices - all while keeping in mind our core principles: transformative, inclusive, accessible, equity-minded, and sustainable.

Explore Resources for Transformative Teaching and Learning Practices
It is not uncommon to teach the way we were taught and depending on where we went to school, our professor's style, the student population, and discipline, the way we were taught can vary. One of the dominant approaches is lecture-driven and high-stakes testing however; empirical research has evidenced and proposes more differentiated approaches that align with our diverse student populations, disciplinary focus, learning outcomes and our own teaching philosophy.
