Class Video Recording

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to view your teaching? The Centre for Teaching and Learning staff are available to record your class and provide you with a copy of the recording. The recording will be yours to view in private, with a colleague or with one of the CTL’s Learning Specialists. Watching the recording provides an invaluable insight into your teaching.

Many faculty are now choosing to include a copy of this recording within their teaching dossier as another piece of evidence of teaching excellence.
