The Centre for Teaching Support & Innovation brings together educational developers, faculty members, teaching, learning and technology liaisons, and staff as we all work toward building accessible, engaging and enriching teaching and learning environments at the University of Toronto.
CTSI programming, cohort-based learning and events allows our community to come together in a variety of ways and on a number of platforms.

New asynchronous program: Build a Welcoming Home Page in Quercus
Your Course Home Page sets the tone for your course and often is the source of a student’s first impression of your course. Join CTSI’s new asynchronous program that provides you with the tools you need to build an inviting and welcoming learning environment, starting with the Course Home Page. We anticipate this program will take up to two hours to complete.
By the end of this program, you will be able to:
- Describe social presence, teaching presence, and cognitive presence as part of the community of inquiry model
- Utilize the Rich Content Editor in Quercus to edit text and include audiovisual materials on Quercus Pages
- Create a Course Home Page that fosters social presence, teaching presence, and cognitive presence

It is a cross-divisional forum that allows instructors, librarians and staff to celebrate their commitment to teaching and learning.
