10th Annual Celebration of Teaching and Faculty Showcase

The Centre for Teaching and Learning Celebration of Teaching and Faculty Showcase
Thursday, April 22, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
 
Join us for CTL’s annual showcase, which highlights teaching excellence at UTSC. Each Spring the Centre for Teaching and Learning brings together educators from across campus to join CTL faculty and staff in celebrating teaching and learning throughout the year. Panel discussions, roundtable discussions, faculty talks and this new this year informal themed lunchrooms all give educators an opportunity to share their achievements with each other. This year will mark the first virtual Showcase on Zoom.
