Effective teaching with technology, for both online and blended learning classrooms, often depends on committed instructors, educational developers, and sound ePedagogy (Li & Akins, 2005). In an innovative course offered by our Educational Development Centre, nine faculty members, from diverse disciplines, academic ranks, and practical experience levels, worked together bi-weekly using the topic of e-Pedagogy as a starting point for enhancing student learning through the use of educational technologies. Over the course of eight months, our group has transformed into a faculty learning community (FLC) that has shared a variety of discussions and experiences: evaluating ePedagogy, articulating learning outcomes, encouraging student motivation, learning educational technologies, challenging traditional assessment methods, developing online learning modules, and collaborating as a support system for each other. Our goal has been to create online learning modules for our courses to engage students actively with technology and thoughtful well-considered pedagogy supported by research.

After a brief introduction to the FLC, participants will divide up into small groups with members of the ePedagogy FLC to explore the process of becoming a community in this interactive session. Participants will share insights on the benefits and challenges of ePedagogy for online learning and have the opportunity to test out the learning modules in a hands-on manner.
