Teaching and Learning
Teaching & Learning Commons
At the centre of KPU’s experiential learning approach—where thought meets action—is networking with industry and forging real-world connections. The Teaching & Learning Commons, a webpage, blog and hub for both teaching and learning resources, furthers that aim.
Find professional development opportunities, get the latest news and tips, share your own updates, read about other students’ experiences, and get the details about exciting faculty, instructor, and educator initiatives underway.
