It’s a new year and the Task Force on Teaching and Learning is looking for further community involvement, says associate VP-academic, Bill Krane.

"It’s pretty clear that everyone understands our research mission," says Krane. "Now we’re trying to raise the profile of teaching and learning."

Since the group began its work in June 2008, the views of more than 300 faculty instructors and administrators and dozens of staff members have helped to paint a picture of SFU’s current scenario. The task force also surveyed prospective students and parents to determine their expectations of university teaching and learning.

Over the next six months, a number of working groups will focus on key issues.

"We want to bring the entire university community together to discuss the issues," says Stephanie Chu, special projects advisor. "We need to showcase the positive things we’re already doing and also figure out new ways to better support teaching and learning."

The task force has scheduled participatory community events at all three campuses, Jan. 23-27. Its final report, scheduled for completion in June 2009, will outline a strategy for teaching and learning support. For more information visit: www.sfu.ca/tftl.
