Teaching & Learning Task Force

As part of the University's commitment to advancing our strategic goals in the area of teaching and learning, the Associate VP, Academic established a new Task Force on Teaching and Learning in June 2008. The Task Force entails collaboration among representatives from a broad range of academic departments, Faculties and support units. The Task Force, with the involvement of the community, will make recommendations on a vision and strategic plan for teaching and learning support systems at SFU. Long-term goals include the alignment of teaching and learning activities with university priorities, and their coordination and integration with other institutional initiatives. More information is available in the links below.
