Teaching and learning


An outcome of the pandemic has been renewed interest in strengthening and investing in our teaching and learning approaches, technologies and learning environments. Led with the faculties, consultations with Concordia stakeholders will be undertaken in order to build an appropriate strategy to adequately support future investments in teaching and learning.

A leadership committee comprised of representation from the Advisory Committee on Teaching and Learning (ACTL) is overseeing this federated approach to building the plan.
