Centre for Teaching Excellence

About Us

Founded in 2017, the Centre for Teaching Excellence was created to foster and enhance a culture of excellence in teaching and learning with the goal of supporting student success. It is also engaged in connecting scholarly inquiry to teaching effectiveness and practice. Throughout the year we connect with hundreds of faculty members, supporting innovative and effective teaching practices. The Centre is located in Fir 402 and provides both in person and online support to a broad range of faculty across the campus.



Capilano University is named after Chief Joe Capilano, an important leader of the Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh) Nation of the Coast Salish people. We respectfully acknowledge that our campuses are located on the unceded sovereign Indigenous Nations of Lil’wat, xʷməθkʷəy̓əm(Musqueam), Shíshálh (Sechelt), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh(Squamish) and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh).
