The conference serves as a remarkable reminder of Waterloo’s commitment to teaching excellence and demonstrates how deeply passionate our educators are about preparing students to be innovators and solve some of society’s toughest problems through engaged, experiential learning. 

“As one of our flagship events, we’re pleased to celebrate the conference’s 15th anniversary. The longstanding and increasing interest in this event are heartening and reflect a commitment to outstanding teaching and learning at Waterloo,” said Dr. Donna Ellis, Director of the Centre for Teaching Excellence (CTE).  

“We’re also seeing increased involvement from other institutions. This year, we had attendees coming from 18 different post-secondary institutions across Canada and even a few from international universities,” added Brianna Bennett, Educational Research Associate in the CTE.
