CTL Advisory Committee

CTL delivers on its mission by bridging networks and leveraging expertise residing in partner programs (other university units with a mandate that touches on the learning environment) and faculties. The active link between CTL and faculties is CTL’s Advisory Committee. The Advisory is made up of a representative from each of the UofA’s faculties, usually an Associate Dean with teaching and learning in the portfolio, students, and representatives from other key stakeholder groups. This grass roots advisory identifies and helps shape CTL’s priorities and ultimately highlights key teaching and learning related issues for the UofA as a whole.
