CTE has temporarily relocated to East Campus 3 (EC3). We will continue to offer our regular programs and services from our temporary offices and workshop locations.

Focus on Teaching Week

Held each October, Focus on Teaching Week brings together core workshops, new approaches, and guest speakers. Typically, the week begins with our full-day Course Design Fundamentals. CTE staff then collaborate with Waterloo faculty and graduate students to present on topics such as integrative learning, workplace learning, assessment, high impact practices, and active learning.

The 2019 Focus on Teaching Week will run from October 21 to 25. For an idea of what to expect, view the 2018 lineup:
