Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund

In direct support of For the Public Good and the Build, Experience and Excel strategic goals, the TLEF has been created to improve teaching and learning effectiveness. Applications are invited from all University of Alberta instructors who seek innovative ways of creating exceptional learning experiences and environments. It is anticipated that this fund will support a diverse range of initiatives specifically focused on creating exceptional and life changing university experiences for students.

TLEF is open to faculty from across the Faculty, aiming to “enhance student experiences through engagement, continue the integration of teaching and research, and promote the scholarship of teaching and learning." Please visit the Office of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) for application forms and guidelines.
