2023 Learning & Teaching Conference

Reimagining Teaching

The Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching presents the annual TMU Learning and Teaching Conference. 

Our theme this year is Reimagining Teaching. We will bring together the teaching community at TMU to build on what we’ve learned over the past few years about creating accessible, inclusive, and engaging learning environments, and we’ll ask big questions about how we might reimagine our teaching practices moving forward: experimenting with bold new approaches to pedagogy; leveraging the wealth of digital learning tools at our disposal; and making the most of our campus learning spaces to provide high-quality experiences for every student.
