The Centre for Teaching and learning is the academic service unit that promotes and supports quality teaching and builds teaching and educational leadership capacity in direct support of Queen’s students’ learning experiences. We support evidence-based, innovative and sustainable strategic program enhancement initiatives, and encourage and support emerging, grassroots investigations of novel approaches to teaching and learning.

With the broad mandate to help Queen's Educators we provide support with:

Teaching and Assessment Strategies

Taking practice-based and literature-informed approaches, the CTL partners with Queen’s educators by providing expertise to enhance pedagogical practices, and provides educational leadership within the context of Canadian higher education.

Learning Outcomes; Course/Curriculum Design and Review

We collaborate at all levels of practice - Institutional, Faculty, Departmental and individual - working toward course and curriculum improvement, learning outcomes identification and assessment, mapping and development initiatives for existing and new programs.

Learning Spaces and Educational Technologies

We collaborate with educators at the university on matters related to design, use and assessment of the teaching and learning environment. Our purpose is to provide a perspective that represents the needs of faculty and that enhances students’ learning experience. The teaching and learning environment includes both physical and virtual spaces and the implementation of learning technology to support learning in all instructional environments at Queen’s.

Graduate Student and Post-Doc Teaching Development

The CTL provides programming, resources and support for graduate students’ and post-docs’ development as educators. Working with individuals or departmental groups we help to develop teaching skills and conceptions of teaching and learning.
