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.

Flexible hybrid learning

Over the past few months, Information Technology Services have been working on the implementation of audio-visual flexible hybrid solutions in various classrooms across the campus.  Requirements have been gathered, proof of concept demonstrations have been held for both onsite and remote participants, room audits have been completed to determine installation requirements and/or challenges, equipment has been tested and procurement has been finalized. 

To ensure success in the classroom, it is essential that faculty members using the flexible hybrid equipment have a compatible device and register for an online training session.   In addition, you have the option of booking one of our practice rooms for hands on training.  Emails have been sent to all flexible hybrid participants detailing the information below:

  • OBTAIN A COMPATIBLE DEVICE 

    Flexible hybrid participants must obtain a device with a USB-C connection in order to ensure compatibility with the audio visual equipment. An email has been forwarded to your ontariotechu.ca email advising if you are required to pick up a compatible device.  NOTE:  Bringing a personal laptop or device that has not been tested by Information Technology Services may result in incompatibility with the flexible hybrid equipment.

    In addition, in the event that you require a firmware update, one of our Software Support Analysts will be contacting you to schedule 30 minutes to walk you through this process.

  • REGISTER FOR AN ON-SITE TRAINING SESSION
    • Learn how to display videos seamlessly.
    • Gain hands on experience and step-by-step guidance by audio visual technicians.
    • Learn how to display PowerPoint and slides.
    • Have an opportunity for questions and answers.

    Note: Audio visual technicians will assist in configuring your machine’s settings.  Once set up, your device will automatically default to these settings when you connect to the equipment.   Be sure to bring your compatible device. Participation at this training is strongly recommended as you are required to configure your settings while using the flexible hybrid equipment.
