About CEE

The Centre for Educational Excellence

The SFU Centre for Educational Excellence (CEE) is an integrated service unit that supports faculty members, instructors, staff and academic units in their teaching roles and responsibilities. We support and celebrate those who advance the university’s commitment to delivering effective and engaging learning experiences for students.

By the numbers


We have 57 staff members with expertise in areas ranging from instructional design to learning technology.


We are organized into four divisions—Curriculum & Instructional Design, Learning & Teaching Technology, Learning Experiences Assessment & Planning, and the Institute for the Study of Teaching and Learning in the Disciplines.  


We were formed in July 2019 through the merger of the Centre for English Language Learning, Teaching and Research, the Centre for Online and Distance Education, and the Teaching and Learning Centre.


We have two office locations at the Burnaby campus and one location at the Surrey campus.
