Information for

CTE's main office will be closed on Thursday, April 26 for our annual Teaching and Learning Conference

The elevator in Environment 1 (EV1) is shut down for maintenance from April 23 to May 25, 2018. During this time, the only way to access CTE’s offices on the third floor of EV1 is by the stairs. We are happy to arrange an alternative meeting place for CTE meetings if requested. For directions to our workshop spaces (EV1 241 and 242) via the elevator in EV3, please visit our Location page. We invite you to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. 

History and Newsletters

CTE LogoIn 2007, the Teaching Resources and Continuing Education (TRACE) Office, the Centre for Learning and Teaching through Technology (LT3), and the Learning Resources and Innovation (LRI) unit were combined to create the Centre for Teaching Excellence, a consolidated, full-service unit to support Waterloo’s instructors with their on-campus teaching.

Below you will find an overview of the Centre's history. Our archive of newsletters, published from September 1998 – January 2018, provides a rich record of our work as well. A re-imagined iteration of the newsletter will launch in 2018.
