Welcome to the Online Teaching and Learning series of courses hosted by the Program Delivery department at Thompson Rivers University Open Learning.

These courses are based on the Community of Inquiry (CoI) model of teaching and learning with each course focused on one of the defined ‘presences’ in the CoI.

As you can see, these courses are both free and openly licensed. That means that you can not only participate at no cost, but you are also permitted (encouraged!) to exercise your 5R rights with respect to open content.

You are free to retain, reuse, revise, remix, and/or redistribute these materials, provided you provide attribution and you share them under an open license.

New TRU Open Learning Faculty Members will be asked to complete these courses within six months of receiving their first student.
