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.
CeTL, an experiential approach to teaching and learning, invites the community into the classroom allowing learners to work on authentic problems, questions, or issues presented by or relevant to community partners.
This year’s Symposium will allow participants to learn from the many variations of the CeTL model that thrive in Capilano University classrooms and the wider community, from experiential learning activities, work-integrated and practice-based learning, to imagining new and stronger relationships within and beyond the classroom.
