Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

The advancement of technology has better facilitated hybrid learning. Class times can now be shortened and/or used for activities that better lend themselves to face-to-face interaction.

Instructors also need innovative tools in order to drive participation and collaboration among learners. To be effective in a hybrid setting, instructors need to ensure that every learner can be seen and heard regardless of learning space or location. 

Ontario Tech University has deployed numerous educational technologies that can empower this type of effective hybrid learning experience. Some of the technology includes:
