Innovation in Teaching and Learning

We champion curriculum development and change that reflects Concordia’s ambition to be a next-generation university and one of the world’s leading ‘under fifty’ universities.

This includes providing strategic leadership in the development of curriculum innovation; design and delivery of a digital education roadmap; and promotion of inter-institutional learning opportunities for students in Québec, Canada and globally through expanded mobility initiatives, including the development of double-degrees.

In all cases, the Vice-Provost, Innovation in Teaching and Learning, (VPITL) works to position Concordia as a university that provides students with rigorous, engaging academic experiences of world-class standard.
