• Schulich Centre for Teaching Excellence

    Formally established in 1996, the overarching goal of the Schulich Centre for Teaching Excellence (SCTE) is to create an academic community within Schulich that is committed to teaching and learning excellence. A typical year’s activity includes providing development and support for over 200 full-time and part-time faculty members across 900 courses, conducting workshops and training, individual coaching, working through JIT issues as they arise in various courses, maintenance of the website, peer evaluation, overseeing the student-run Seymour Schulich Teaching Excellence Awards, as well as a range of other teaching and learning initiatives.

Underpinning the overall goals of creating an academic community committed to teaching and learning excellence are specific and sometimes interrelated objectives:

· build knowledge and skills to enhance course design, delivery, and assessment for both new and more experienced faculty;
· rapid identification and response to teaching issues;
· recognize teaching excellence and diffuse best practices;
· lead and interface with various committees, administrators and students on teaching and learning policies, curriculum and resources within Schulich; and
· scholarly engagement on teaching and learning with the wider academic community.
