• Purpose: to operationalize/help achieve vision articulated in both the SIP
and the TLF; to advance the overarching goal of engaging students to
promote deep learning and success; to help foster a strong culture of
excellence in teaching and learning across the University.
• Structure: The TLC consists of self-directed, member-driven, actionoriented, university-wide teams working collaboratively on initiatives that
interest members.
• Function: They plan, design and implement projects to support both their
own teaching AND teaching and learning across the University.
• Composition: Currently 36 members including T&L Liaisons from Faculties,
librarians, professional service staff involved in supporting teaching,
undergraduate and graduate students, representatives of the three TLS
units, and other teaching and learning champions, such as winners of
internal university-wide teaching awards, and early and/or successful
adopters of various innovative pedagogies and e-learning technologies.
