From Remote to Traditional:
Continuing the Best Practices Learned from the Pandemic
Description: Despite the overwhelming consequences of the pandemic, COVID-19 forced us to rethink how technology can be used to teach and connect with students and families. Although districts across our state have shifted back to traditional teaching, we do not have to abandon some of the best practices learned from the pandemic. District and school leaders and classroom teachers are invited to join us to learn how you can continue to use technology to support student learning, personalize and differentiate learning, and engage with students and families.
Target Audience: All are Welcome!

CIDER Session June 2021

Dear CIDER Member,

We invite you to our next session for the 2020-21 COHERE-CIDER Sessions series on Wednesday, June 16, 2021. This free, online session will feature Leeann Waddington of Kwantlen Polytechnic University.

Title: Appreciative Inquiry based faculty development: A mixed methods case study

The COVID-19 pandemic required a pivot to remote course delivery that provided many faculty an initial experience teaching online. This begs the question – how can we use this experience to support ongoing engagement with online delivery models in the future? For decades there has been discussion about the need for change in higher education, and more recently the potential for blended and online learning as a path forward. The pandemic may serve as a catalyst to move us forward.

Appreciative inquiry is an organizational development framework that focusses on strengths and success to build capacity for future innovation and change. It has been used in education to support teaching and learning, curriculum and community development, leadership, program evaluation and more. This mixed methods case study explores how the use of appreciative inquiry by education developers impacts faculty adoption of technology and online delivery models as well as their professional development experience. The use of appreciative inquiry offers faculty an opportunity to engage in a reflective, collaborative strengths-based process to re-imaging their future teaching practice.

Leeann Waddington leads the Learning Technology and Educational Consultant teams at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Previously a faculty member in Nursing and Health Sciences, Leeann was the 2015 faculty Daisy award winner for teaching excellence and holds a Post Masters Certificate in Curriculum Design. Leeann is a doctoral candidate in the Distance Education (EdD) program at Athabasca University. Her research explores the possible impact of Appreciative Inquiry on faculty development aimed at supporting the adoption of blended and online learning. She is also an Appreciative Inquiry facilitator and trainer with the Center for Appreciative Inquiry, and an advocate for the culture of folio thinking pedagogy.

When: Wednesday, June 16, 2021 – 11am to 12noon Mountain Time (Canada)

Where: Online through Adobe Connect at:

Registration is not required; all are welcome. The COHERE-CIDER Sessions are recorded and archived for later viewing through the CIDER website:

About the 2020-21 COHERE-CIDER Sessions Series

The 2020-21 COHERE-CIDER Sessions Series features presentations by leading researchers in distance, distributed, and online learning.

As many educational institutions have turned to alternate delivery modes for their programs, in response to the current Covid-19 pandemic, COHERE, Canada’s Collaboration for Online Higher Education Research, has decided to move the 2020 Annual Conference into an alternative format.

For this 2020-21 season, COHERE is partnering with the Canadian Institute of Distance Education Research (CIDER) to offer an ongoing series of current research and evidence-informed practice webinars focused on online and blended learning, in Canadian higher education. Each month a presenter or a panel of presenters will share research findings and facilitate discussion focused on a relevant topic or issue. The webinar series is designed to showcase current Canadian research on online and blended learning and how it is informing practice. This series of synchronous virtual sessions provides an opportunity for knowledge dissemination among researchers, practitioners, instructional designers, and educational developers.

About CIDER

CIDER is supported by the International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning (IRRODL) and the Centre for Distance Education, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Athabasca University: Canada’s Open University and leader in professional online education.
