Victoria Feth: Centre for Teaching Excellence (CTE) Liaison to the Faculty of Arts

Please note: I am on leave beginning Aug. 9th, 2021.

In response to the situation with COVID-19, the University's academic support units, including the Centre for Teaching Excellence (CTE) can help instructors adapt their in-class plans to remote teaching. 

Go to LEARN and course tasks for instructors. (Note these may be different during the COVID-19 situation.)

I work with the following groups in Arts:

  • Anthropology, Classical Studies, Drama, English, Fine Arts, French Studies, Germanic and Slavic Studies, History, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Spanish and Latin American Studies, Speech Communication, and the Stratford School;
  • and the Affiliated and Federated Institutions of Waterloo (AFIW): Conrad Grebel University College, St. Jerome’s University, St. Paul’s University College, and Renison University College. 

Contact me if you want to:

  • design or redesign a remote or on-campus course (or parts of), leveraging principles of blended learning and alignment of learning outcomes, activities, assessments, grading criteria, and feedback;
  • find teaching and learning resources, including people, workshops, and scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL);
  • build community in Arts and the AFIW by connecting with other instructors interested in enhancing teaching and learning;
  • learn to use LEARN more effectively;
  • request a workshop tailored to your group’s needs;
  • and/or find more information about:
    • educational technology other than LEARN,
    • programs and services for faculty and staff (e.g. classroom observations), and
    • curriculum development.
  • If it’s not listed here, please ask!

More about me

I consult with instructors to design user-friendly, pedagogically-sound courses in which learning outcomes, activities, and assessments are aligned and reflect instructors’ priorities and passion. I connect instructors to resources in CTE and beyond, providing evidence-based support for instructors’ teaching and learning needs. I also contribute to CTE as a workshop facilitator and assist CTE experts in curriculum development. From small tasks to blended/remote courses, I help instructors and teaching assistants independently and confidently use LEARN as well as adopt existing and new educational technology.

I completed my M.A. in English Literary Studies at Waterloo, in addition to my B.Ed. and B.A. in English Language and Literature and Catholic Studies for Teachers (a mix of theology, philosophy and history) at Western. I taught English and ESL for three years at a private international high school, where I designed courses, chose textbooks and novels, and created activities and assessments. In 2015, I joined Waterloo as staff at the Waterloo Professional Development Program (WatPD), where I supported the development of PD courses, especially through assessment, rubric, and simulation design.
