Transforming Inquiry into Learning + Teaching (TILT) formerly The Institute for the Study of Teaching and Learning in the Disciplines (ISTLD)

Inspiring, supporting, and enhancing teaching and learning inquiry at SFU since 2007.


On September 28, Simon Fraser University’s Office of the Vice-Provost, Learning and Teaching launched the Transforming Inquiry into Learning and Teaching (TILT). This new team aligns and builds on the teaching and learning research expertise of SFU’s Institute for the Study of Teaching and Learning in the Disciplines (ISTLD) to create opportunities and entry ways for faculty, instructors, staff, and students to engage in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) at Simon Fraser University.  

Together we are transforming inquiry into teaching and learning at SFU – building on the habits of mind, practices, technologies, and connections that uncover key moments in our individual and shared journeys as scholars of teaching and learning!
