Professional Advisory on Anti-Black Racism

The College’s Professional Advisory on Anti-Black Racism recognizes that Ontario Certified Teachers (OCTs) play an important and influential role in learning environments and as such, are uniquely positioned to help address anti-Black racism and its impact on students. The advisory examines how OCTs can work toward overcoming long-standing and historical legacies and break down deeply entrenched systemic barriers.

Video Conferencing Guidelines

Video conferencing adds a new dimension to the way we connect with friends and family. When used effectively, it can also be a valuable tool in aiding instruction as it can enhance students’ learning and keep them engaged while supporting their mental health, particularly when they are isolated from classmates, friends and extended family.
