Our Story

Outside of the Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex

The Centre was founded by building on the university's existing teaching resources to help better support the teaching culture and give faculty & instructors better cross-unit access and insight.

In January 2020, the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching opened its doors on the 7th floor of the Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex, amalgamating six primary resources across the Office of the Vice-Provost, Academic (OVPA) and Computing and Communications Services (CCS):

  • Academic Integrity
  • Curriculum Quality
  • Digital Media Projects
  • eLearning
  • Experiential Learning
  • Teaching Development

Our Mission

The Centre’s collaborative approach fosters a community dedicated to big thinking about curriculum, pedagogy and creative ways to develop inclusive teaching practices that enrich the student learning experience.

Our Pillars

Teaching Development & Consultation

We encourage pedagogical ingenuity by connecting, advising and collaborating with faculty, lecturers, teaching assistants and graduate students. The Centre takes a holistic approach to delivering creative and effective teaching – whether it’s to improve a course, explore new classroom technology or stay up to date on the latest learning research.

Curriculum Enhancement

Enriching the quality of education at Toronto Metropolitan University starts with designing current and relevant programs. We help faculties and departments collaborate on curriculum development, review and renewal to ensure that the university remains at the forefront of academic inquiry.

Creative approaches to learning & teaching

We use our collaborative space as a testing ground and hub to partner with the community to develop new teaching methods that enrich learning experiences and improve accessibility. From live-actor simulations to blended and e-learning initiatives, the classroom of the future takes shape here.
