Teaching & Learning
The Centre for Teaching, Learning, & Technology is a new initiative approved by Senate to provide leadership and expertise in pedagogy and technology in support of teaching and learning at Brandon University. The CTLT enhances the practice, culture, and scholarship of teaching and learning by:
- promoting effective teaching, including support for creative pedagogical practices, curriculum development, and evaluation;
- providing regular and focused faculty development activities; and
- providing guidance and support for the adoption and use of instructional technologies.
The Teaching Resource Guide is a compact resource tool to support faculty in preparing for the academic year. Information provided in the guide includes academic policies and regulations as well as other materials with helpful suggestions from colleagues. The resource guide is updated annually and copies are provided to new faculty members and available upon requested.
Brandon University recognizes outstanding faculty members in the areas of teaching and research through a variety of awards, including the Senate Award for Excellence in Teaching and the Senate Award for Excellence in Research. In addition, a number of named professorships have been established for accomplished and note-worthy faculty. The Stanley Knowles Distinguished Visiting Professor (SKDVP) is an opportunity to bring a scholar or scholars who have an international reputation in research/scholarship to Brandon University.
