CTE Director spearheads guide for reviewing teaching centres

CTE is excited to share the latest publication in the Educational Development Guide Series, Centre Reviews: Strategies for Success, which is now available on the Educational Developers Caucus website. CTE’s Director, Donna Ellis, led the development of the Guide, with six co-authors from institutions across Canada. Centre reviews are becoming increasingly common in the field of educational development. They offer an important opportunity for members of a teaching and learning Centre to reflect critically on the direction and work of their Centre and to invite feedback from the communities and clients they serve. CTE undertook a Centre review in 2017; the Self-Study we developed for that external review distills several years of data as well as feedback solicited from numerous partners and stakeholders, and our Final Assessment Report responds to each of the recommendations made in the external review.
