About Me

My name is Edward Smith, a Lecturer in General Electives at the University of Guelph/Humber and a Sessional Lecturer in the Department of History at the University of Guelph, in Guelph, Ontario Canada. Over the past eight years, I have developed an expertise in teaching online at the Universities of Guelph and Guelph/Humber.  I have a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts degree from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, majoring in History.

I have Ph.D. from the University of Guelph, in Guelph, Ontario, in the History of Canada and in the History of Religion.

I have taught as a Sessional Lecturer at the University of Guelph since 2001 and at Guelph/Humber since 2010.

I have been teaching online  Distance Education courses since 2004, and in recent years all of my teaching has been online.

In the Winter term of 2012, I took up a Fellowship sponsored by the University of Guelph and CUPE Local 3913 [Unit 2] to develop guidelines for online instruction.

My personal research interests are in the sub-field of popular religion, with my own work focussed on Anglicanism in Canada.

Presently, I am developing an interactive, multi-media eBook essay on the relationship between religion and society in the Atlantic world.

    Ted, you are a better man than I twice over: marking for a 100 undergrads a semester was my upper limit – and strung me out.

      Hi Terry

      Well it is the severe cut backs on play. I recall being one of six TAs for History 101 back in 1993 with a class of about 100. My world religions now usually has 150 and only two TAs. At Guelph Humber my class has 90 and no TA. But then I am one of the few Sessionals to survive so far. You are lucky you don’t have to make the decisions anymore!
