Journal Club

The Journal Club is being launched to support faculty in the engagement in the scholarship of teaching and learning. The club will provide a space for open, respectful, cross-disciplinary conversations around issues and research in teaching and learning. The aim is to evaluate the robustness of the research and the methodology chosen, and consider its relevance to one’s own teaching practice.

If you are interested or have questions about the Journal Club, please contact ACE.

Faculty Professional Development Certificate Program

The Faculty Professional Development Certificate Program (also known as Facilitating Learning in Higher Education or FLH) is currently under redevelopment. It will be available for faculty to register and complete in the near future.
