Two faculty talking at New Faculty Orientation.

The Teaching and Learning Commons (TLC) provides teaching support and resources for faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows. TLC staff collaborate with campus partners to assist instructors in enhancing their teaching tools, whether on campus or online, to deepen student learning.

Faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows may request assistance from the Teaching and Learning Commons staff. Some examples include course design, assessment consultations, infographics, videos, and classroom support.

Faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows may alternatively choose to collaborate with another faculty member or graduate student through the Peer Support of Teaching Program. Some examples of the services provided through this program include discussions of teaching and learning, classroom observations, and course reviews

The Teaching and Learning Commons (TLC) invites proposals to present at our 7th annual Celebrate event on May 13th, with sessions being sought to:

  • Enhance teaching;
  • Showcase the latest instructional approaches and technologies;
  • Promote networking for research collaboration (especially as it relates to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning);
  • Share examples of academic excellence (e.g. assessment);
  • Encourage fun and energizing wellness activities.

The TLC is looking for dynamic and interactive sessions (50 minutes in length including Q&A) that challenge our thinking and promote innovation in teaching and learning.

Please note that the submission deadline is noon, March 23rd. Event registration will open the first week of April. We’re looking forward to another great event!
