Faculty Profiles: Student-Faculty Interaction
FOCUS ON FACULTY
Many faculty at the University of Toronto have successfully implemented different strategies for interacting with students in their courses. In this section, we highlight a range of examples that have worked for different faculty at the UofT. Here you may find inspiration for methods to explore in your own teaching as introduced in Effective Practices in Support of Student-Faculty Interaction.
The Journal of the Academic & Collaborative Technologies group, ACTion, has a number of interviews with U of T faculty members exploring new and innovative teaching methods.

PROFILES ON PRACTICE
The student experience at UofT is often defined by the connections that students make during their degrees. While it can be challenging to navigate the environment of a large, urban University campus, students may find support and assistance from a wide range of offices and groups on campus. This series of profiles showcases a few of these support areas, and their perspective on the student experience.
