Teaching, Learning, and Wellness Resources Hub

Welcome to the Teaching, Learning, and Wellness Resource Hub!

The Teaching and Learning Team is dedicated to supporting you through all the ups and downs of teaching and learning. By "learning", we are not only referring to the learning of our students, but also ourselves as instructors. Like so many other roles in our lives (researching, grant writing, parenting, etc.) being a great instructor is a process of constant refinement and (sometimes subtle) improvement. The old adage, about being "part science and part art" rings especially true for the field of teaching. The most successful instructors combine the science of teaching (formal training in pedagogy and instructional design) with high levels of self-awareness, and insights from past experiences. The ability to successfully translate these understandings to increase student learning and retention often contain a significant degree of "art". The Teaching and Learning Team would like to support you with both the art and science of teaching and learning by providing a variety of sessions, workshops, lunch and learns, and resources.
