MOU Sessional Training

MOU on Sessional Training for Remote Delivery, June 2020 (PDF)

Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between OCADFA and Administration to compensate sessional faculty for the increased workload incurred from the transition to remote delivery.  The compensation is tied to optional training in online teaching offered by Faculty & Curriculum Development Centre (FCDC).  Sessionals contracted to teach in the 2020/21 academic year who enroll in ‘Teaching Art & Design Online’ will be compensated $650 and receive a certificate in online teaching. The FCDC training offers some guidelines faculty may choose to apply in delivering online courses.  There is specific language on Academic Freedom in the MOU to ensure faculty’s pedagogical expertise and autonomy are not only respected, but underscore OCAD U’s approach towards remote delivery and online teaching.
