About the Teaching & Learning Centre

The Teaching & Learning Centre offers access to expertise in teaching methods, active learning strategies, course design, learning technologies and multiple ways of assessing learning to enrich the student learning and faculty teaching experience at Seneca. We champion a cross-disciplinary, experiential approach to learning.

Working in partnership with academic schools, departments and faculty we offer a wide range of professional development activities, resources and services to facilitate the achievement of the goals of our Strategic Plan 2023–2026.
