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.

Recommendations for validation

The Future of Teaching and Learning working group is currently in phase 3 of their project.

The Advisory Committee has been building a vision for the future starting with a series of guided conversations that took place in the winter of 2022, and they were validated through a community engagement process. 

Core values

  1. We welcome all learners and ensure they feel like they belong
  2. We offer a holistic university experience



Based on the feedback collected after a year of widespread community consultation, four commitments were selected to focus on in the strategic plan:

  1. Teaching for impact
  2. Learner well-being and success
  3. Faculty support
  4. People-centred operations
