Theme: Community-engaged Teaching and Learning

May 3 – 6, 2022



Community-engaged teaching and learning (CeTL) is just what it sounds like: teaching and learning that is focused upon, takes place in, and partners with communities. Whether it is in your classroom, program area, Capilano University, or the greater community, at the core of CeTL is building and reinforcing community!


Supporting this key initiative of Capilano University’s 10-year Academic Plan, Illuminating 2030, the Centre for Teaching Excellence is proud to announce that CeTL will be the theme for this year’s 2022 Teaching and Learning Symposium, taking place in-person at our main North Vancouver campus from Tues May 3 – Fri May 6, 2022.


Call for Proposals 


Connecting to this year’s theme of Community-engaged Teaching and Learning, members of the Capilano University community are invited to submit workshop and presentation proposals showcasing examples of teaching and learning experiences that:
  • Focus upon community issues (local, regional, national, international)
  • Take place in the community
  • Partner with community members
  • Learning activities that are experiential, work-integrated, or practice-based
  • Build and reinforce new relationships in and beyond the classroom.
Support for Your Proposal 


Have an idea you would like to share with others at the Symposium, but not sure how to start?


Not sure how to translate your idea so that all participants recognize the links to their own teaching and learning? The CTE is here to help!


Book a 30-minute consultation with CTE to help you translate your idea into a presentation, panel, or workshop proposal.
