Centre for Teaching Excellence

About Us

The Centre for Teaching Excellence (CTE) fosters excellence, innovation, and collaboration in teaching and learning by supporting faculty and staff through programming, mentoring, professional development opportunities, and research on effective teaching practices for student learning.

Here are just a few of the things we can work with you on:

  • Developing rubrics
  • Creating learning activities in and outside of class
  • Active learning strategies
  • Curricular alignment (assignments, activities and learning outcomes)
  • Building classroom community
  • Formative feedback and assessment
  • Integrating technology into your teaching
Drop by or email us to book an appointment.

We are available for one-on-one consultations Monday through Friday to support you in your teaching, answer questions and to explore any new ideas for innovative and evidence-based approaches to teaching and learning.

We’d love to hear from you!

Whether you have a question about workshops, events, or anything else, our team is ready!

Meet CTE team!
