NEXTcast is back! In our season three debut, we shake things up a bit. We’re pleased to present NEXTcast 3.1, a compilation of teaching tips from Humber’s very own faculty. These tips are especially suited to new professors, but provide valuable insight for any faculty member. Hear from colleagues and students, as they share what works for them in the classroom—from queueing up music to greet sleepy 8:00am class-takers, to connecting with other faculty members to continue your own growth in your teaching practice.

In NEXTcast 3.2, our first interview-style episode of the season, we sit down with Jennifer Gordon, Director of the Centre for Creative Business Innovation & Galleries. Jennifer sheds light on the new mandate for the galleries, and how faculty and students can get involved. It’s an exciting time for the galleries, and you won’t want to miss this conversation!
