About the TLC
Who we are
The Teaching and Learning Centre consists of education and technology professionals who support SFU instructors and academic units in the development and delivery of innovative approaches designed to enhance their students' learning experiences. We provide educational consultation, technical and pedagogical services, assistance with course and curriculum development, and professional development opportunities.
We are part of the teaching and learning support network and a university-wide cultural shift towards a greater emphasis on teaching and learning. Our activities include general and discipline-specific approaches. We partner with other members of the university community on all three campuses to promote and celebrate the creative culture of teaching and learning. We engage in internal and external partnerships to support institutional strategic priorities.
What we can do for you
Our programs and services are available to all SFU instructors, staff, and TAs/TMs. We offer regular workshops and presentations on many teaching-related topics. In addition, we offer personalized support, incorporating both general and discipline-specific approaches, for teaching and learning initiatives by individual instructors. Our team includes specialists in a variety of areas:
- Educational consulting
- Educational media
- Learning technologies
- Programming and professional development
We aim to be a “one-stop, one-step” resource—where SFU instructors and programs receive the assistance they seek from the first TLC person they contact or definitely by the next step within SFU’s teaching and learning support network.
