  • Teaching & Learning Symposium: reactions

    The 2014 Teaching & Learning Symposium, held on November 3rd at Hart House, proved to be an inspiring day for the almost 300 attendees.

  • Setting the Tone NOW: Engaging Students in your Course Evaluations

    By Cherie Werhun, PhD, Teaching Assessment & Course Evaluation Coordinator, CTSI Let’s be honest: Course evaluations are the last thing on an instructor’s mind in early September.

  • The Cheesy Smackdown

One of the first to arrive is a co-presentation with Munk School of Global Affairs and the […]
