The Centre for Teaching and Learning will be hosting an open house for all at Queen's who would like to see our new space and see how the Centre is transforming to help create a more collaborative Queen's!
More information will be available in August on this exciting event!
Learning Outcomes Assessment Project
Website Now Live!
Queen's is one of a consortium of three universities (including Guelph University and University of Toronto) and three colleges, funded by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO) to assess transferable learning outcomes. Learning outcomes are statements of what a learner is expected to understand, value, or demonstrate after completion of a process of learning. The Learning Outcomes are measurable, and communicate expectations to learners about the skills, attitudes and behaviours they are expected to achieve after successful completion of a course, program or degree. Many jurisdictions and institutions now require learning outcomes, but there is still much to learn about assessing student learning. Accurate assessment of learning outcomes is an essential component of competency-based education.

This annual day-long professional development conference is for anyone who teaches at Queen's who is interested to learn about new and interesting developments in teaching and learning.
This year, we are pleased to kick off the conference with Dr. James Fraser and Kevin Alexander from Physics, who will set the tone of the day with an interactive and inspiring plenary on “tag-team teaching”.
Sessions throughout the day will focus on this approach of faculty and graduate students working together to enhance the learning process for their students.
We will also be adding a Poster Session and an Action Planning Closing Plenary activity to help us put ideas into action in the coming 2015/16 academic year!
Please watch for complete program information and registration access in early August 2015.
