Dear Colleagues,

I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Brad Johnson as Simon Fraser University’s next Director, Teaching and Learning Centre, effective March 1, 2017.

Dr. Johnson comes to SFU from Zayed University, where he is currently Assistant Professor and Director of the Centre for Educational Innovation. Brad has previously served as Director for the Centre for Teaching and Learning in the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Calgary – Qatar. I believe that Brad’s dedication to innovation in teaching and learning and his experience in academic leadership and educational technology development will be great assets to the Teaching and Learning Centre and to Simon Fraser University in the years ahead.

I am also pleased to announce that Ms. Chris Groeneboer will extend her appointment as acting Director for the interim period. I extend my thanks to Chris for her willingness to continue as acting Director, and look forward to a smooth transition in the spring.
