Supporting the Effective and Appropriate Use of Technology

The mandate of the Instructional Support Studio or “The Studio” is to support faculty use of educational technology in an effective and pedagogically sound manner. This is done through on-site workshops, webinars and one-on-one sessions.

The "Studio" is pleased to provide a variety of services to ensure the effective and appropriate use of technology to support learning at Humber.
Offering a number of workshops, our staff conducts workshops and training sessions for faculty, staff and administration  covering a number of areas:
