Teaching, Making & Performing Online

What we do

TEMPO is a team of creative researchers and faculty support, working in tandem with the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL).

Drawing upon our backgrounds in the fine arts, we offer creative pedagogical support to faculty members who are teaching online. We recommend innovative techniques, demonstrate how to use platforms for remote pedagogy, and provide connections to internal and external resources.

Faculty members can click below to access our online service desk and submit specific questions about teaching, making, and performing online.

Preflight meetings for faculty

We offer 30-minute meetings prior to class, to run through any activities included in your plan for the day’s class session, such as: using breakout rooms for group projects and critiques, conducting polling in Zoom, etc.

Drop-in presentation: Zoom tips for students

We also offer 5-minute drop-ins at the beginning of the semester to give a short presentation of Zoom tips for students, to make your class sessions run more smoothly.
