Office of Open Learning announces Open Learning Digital Fluency Fellows

The Office of Open Learning is proud to announce UWindsor’s Open Learning Digital Fluency Fellows. This #OLDFF cohort of fellows will build local strategic capacity for humanizing online learning experiences, while contributing to a larger eCampus Ontario-funded Humanizing Learning project with six partner institutions across the province. 

Led by a collaborative UWindsor team of Nick Baker, Dave Cormier, and Bonnie Stewart, #OLDFF fellows will engage in a series of multi-institutional conversations that focus on practices for humanizing online learning. Fellows will be bringing aspects of the provincial project conversations back to our campus community: look for fellows’ reflections and takeaways on this site throughout fall 2021.
