Resources to Support Excellence in Teaching
Excellence in teaching is central to the University of Lethbridge. Our strategic plan promotes a diverse and inclusive environment, research-informed teaching, and creating engaging learning environments for our students. The pandemic created unprecedented challenges for our small, student-centred university, but it also reminded us how important teaching and learning are to our community, reaffirmed our commitment to our students, and created new (if not always welcome) opportunities to explore more inclusive and effective teaching practices. This resource invites our teaching community to capitalize on what we have learned by defining key features of excellence in teaching and making it easier for teachers on campus to explore and demonstrate their excellence. A core tenet is that excellence in teaching (regardless of modality) is student-centered, research-driven, observable, and measurable.
