The Teaching & Learning Commons
Catalyst, Collaborator, Connector, Communicator & Coordinator
KPU's teaching and learning centre has been renamed to the "Teaching and Learning Commons", formerly known as INSTL. The Commons extends beyond the typical definition of a teaching and learning centre. As you'll see through this website, the "Commons" is a place for all members of the University Community who have a common interest in teaching and learning. We invite and recognize contributions and experiences from the KPU community. Feel free to post in the blog and/or contact us if you have expertise you'd like to share (e.g. co-facilitating workshops, communities of practice, co-developing Pro-D programs for KPU educators, etc.)
The Teaching and Learning Commons serves as a catalyst, collaborator, connector, communicator and coordinator for teaching, learning and scholarship at KPU. In other words, we are stewards, work in partnership with other academic and administrative departments and provide complementary expertise. Together, we will achieve exemplary student learning experiences and leadership in distinctive areas of teaching and learning within the BC post-secondary community, and beyond. You will have multiple opportunities to contribute to KPU's teaching and learning plan, as well as the Commons' directions. In the meantime, we welcome hearing from you. We are located at the Surrey campus, Arbutus 2400, but are happy to visit you at any campus or office, by appointment. To contact specific individuals, please see our Contact our Team page.
