Welcome to CBU Teaching Faculty

Whether you are a long-time professor, part-time sessional lecturer or lab instructor, the CTL is here to support your professional development with a comprehensive collection of training resources. Maybe you are seeking guidance on best practices in assessment, diversity and inclusion, student engagement, or online teaching. The CTL can help you overcome challenges and utilize innovative ideas in your teaching practice. The CTL creates and curates resources, provides an extensive video library and offers self-directed and peer learning opportunities. It also organizes an annual University Teaching Program. The CTL’s specialized podcast, Beyond the Class, is another signature program, produced in-house by the CTL team. It features conversations on decolonizing education, pedagogy of play, accessible classrooms and more.

A Message from the Academic Director of the Centre for Teaching and Learning

Everyone at the CTL is motivated by the principle expressed in CBU’s Academic Plan 2020-2025: It is important to ensure that all of our faculty have access to the best resources and support to fuel their curiosity in relation to their subject area, pedagogical approaches, and student needs.

CTL staff are always interacting with faculty, so when we advise CBU on investments in new teaching spaces and related educational technologies, it is as an advocate for the faculty and students who work within this teaching and learning environment. As the environment changes, we continue to provide hands-on and virtual assistance to help you both adapt and maximize pedagogical potential.

The CTL provides opportunities for professional development and peer learning on an ongoing basis. Whether you are a full-time member of CBU’s teaching community or a sessional instructor, a member of NSGEU or CBUFA, the CTL is here to help you meet your teaching responsibilities and continue to grow as university teachers.
