“Staff members of CTE are very highly respected among educational developers in Canada, as well as around the world. Their work is scholarly, grounded in current research on teaching and learning, innovative and carefully designed. CTE is one of the teaching centres we look to as an outstanding centre that models excellence in educational development.” — Feedback received via a "reputation survey" that CTE conducted as part of its 2017 External Review.

As of August 1, 2018, CTE will be temporarily relocated to East Campus 3 (EC3), where we will be sharing the second floor with the Centre for Extended Learning (CEL). While the locations of offices and workshops will change, we look forward to continuing to serve our campus community by offering our regular programs and services. If you have any questions or concerns about the move, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
The Faculty of Environment's growth has necessitated this relocation; the search for a permanent home for our Centre is underway. Learn more about the move in the Daily Bulletin announcement from Mario Coniglio, Associate Vice-President, Academic, and Susan Tighe, Deputy Provost and Associate Vice-President, Integrated Planning and Budgeting: Centre for Teaching Excellence on the Move.
