As a group, the Teaching Fellows play an important role in improving teaching and learning at the University of Waterloo. In particular, as part of the University’s efforts to implement its strategic plan, they serve as a conduit for sharing projects and ideas across faculty lines and between the faculties and the senior academic leadership of the University. To serve this end, each year the Teaching Fellows select a project that meets an important need within each faculty and that advances an important University-wide strategic priority, and work together with key support units to put the projects into effect. For instance, in 2021, the group decided to pursue the Blended Learning Project, which supported efforts to make good use of teaching materials and strategies developed during the pandemic-enforced move to remote learning to improve their in-person classes.
