Annual Teaching Day

Please join us for Teaching Day on the following days 

Tuesday, October 14, 2014 - Waterloo Campus

 Wednesday, October 15, 2014 - Brantford Campus

Teaching Day 2014 is moving to a new date Tuesday, October 14th at Laurier Waterloo and October 15th at Laurier Brantford.  In the spirit of collaboration and collegiality, the Centre for Teaching Innovation and Excellence (CTIE) is structuring the day around the instructional innovations, successes, and struggles experienced by the Laurier teaching community.

With this goal in mind, we invite faculty, instructional staff, librarians, post-doctoral fellows, and others to submit an expression of interest for a session that you would like to conduct. We encourage a range of formats and topic areas to share/discuss with colleagues.

Teaching Day - Expression of Interest Form

If you have questions or comments about the day or your proposed session, please contact Jeanette McDonald, Manager of Educational Development ( | 519.884.0710 ext 3211) or Joe Beer, Associate Director ( |519.884.0710 ext 4734).

Each year Educational Development co-ordinates an Annual Teaching Day as part of its ongoing commitment to excellence in teaching and learning. The Laurier community (students, staff, faculty and post doctoral fellows) are invited to attend this one-day event.

Those who attend will have the opportunity to:

  1. meet and network with other faculty and teaching staff, academic administrators, and support staff 
  2. discuss teaching issues and challenges with their peers, and identify strategies for success
  3. learn about resources in support of teaching and learning
  4. explore educational matters as they relate to Laurier 
  5. reflect upon your classroom practices

Online registration and a program agenda are available each year at the beginning of July from the Educational Development website. Announcements of the event are posted on the faculty and staff listservs, with special invitations going to faculty and teaching staff new to Laurier.

Following this event, we encourage and invite you (the Laurier community) to:

  1. sign-up and attend Educational Development workshops offered by or promoted through our Office
  2. browse through and sign-out materials from our resource collection
  3. take advantage of our services (e.g., mid-semester feedback / peer consultation), resources (online/hardcopy) and grant programs
  4. meet with us directly for a one-on-one consultation
  5. visit our Educational Development website
