From Explore UCalgary.

Teaching and learning at universities has moved beyond traditional transfer of knowledge from the learned to the learning. In today’s rapidly evolving world, educators are challenged with preparing students to succeed in jobs that don’t even exist yet, in a world in which creativity and innovation are valued as much as knowledge.

What does it take to do this? Join Leslie Reid, UCalgary’s interim Vice-Provost of Teaching and Learning and Jay Cross, Director of the new College of Discovery, Creativity and Innovation in UCalgary's Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning, as they explore the latest trends in teaching and learning, the transformations taking place beyond campus boundaries, and strategies for broader adoption of effective teaching and learning practices across campus.
