Our mission

To collaborate with SFU’s learning and teaching community to inspire and support innovative, inclusive and reflective teaching approaches that create enriched and engaging learning experiences for students.

Our vision for the next five years

Our vision will continue to evolve, but when we ask ourselves what success over the next five years might look like, this is what we see:

  • An institutional culture that values and celebrates teaching excellence
  • A teaching environment that embraces experimentation, innovation and risk-taking
  • A teaching community whose members feel connected and supported in their work
  • Instructors who feel equipped with the knowledge, teaching approaches and technologies to excel in their teaching, assessment, curriculum design and educational leadership roles
  • Academic units that have the tools to design and offer innovative programs and learning experiences that are relevant to SFU’s diverse students and their communities
