The Centre for Educational Excellence offers over 100 teaching development workshops, symposia, intensive courses and faculty learning communities each year, in person, online and blended formats to accommodate instructors on all three campuses. 

Our programs build capacity for innovative, student-focused teaching and learning at SFU. They are designed to engage instructors at all stages of their teaching careers, from teaching assistants and new faculty to seasoned instructors and educational leaders.  

Most events are open to all members of the SFU community. A few of our hands-on, intensive workshops are designed for small groups of instructors working together and require an application or expression of interest.
