Our mission is to support the development of outstanding teaching at Concordia. Through our services and resources we are building a university community committed to sharing ideas and insights on teaching for the advancement of learning and academic success for all.
The CTLS offers a broad range of services to both full-time and part-time faculty as well as graduate students, teaching assistants and staff including workshops, consultations, orientations and seminars in university teaching. Professional development services at a personal and departmental level are also available on demand.
The CTLS provides a series of resources that are updated regularly to ensure access to the latest and most effective ideas and solutions. Whether you're interested in designing a new course, preparing a first lesson, interpreting course evaluations or knowing more about the latest strategies for teaching with technology our tools and guides are available online for quick and easy reference.
The scholarship of teaching and learning continues to gain momentum in higher education and with it comes an ever growing number of great teachers. To celebrate Concordia's community of skilled and distinguished teachers the CTLS has started capturing their views and opinions to find out what it takes to win a teaching award and how our teachers are contributing to student success.
The CTLS and the Sustainability Action Fund invite you to the 2nd Annual Teaching and Learning Winter Festival 2014. The theme of this year's festival is The Power of Curriculum. Join us on February 5-6-7 for special keynotes, workshops, public conversations and much more.
