Effective teaching derives from a climate in which an appreciation of learning prevails and in which faculty and students alive thrive throughout the teaching and learning process. Such a climate is reflected in the ability of faculty to foster a learning climate in which students can be critical, independent thinkers and in which can genuinely pursue their personal and professional goals under the careful guidance and tutelage of quality teaching.
To support this, the Faculty of Nursing has a Teaching Support Initiative which includes resources, workshops and a Peer Teaching Mentorship Team. Information on the Teaching Support Initiative is found in eClass. As well, the Teaching and Learning Office provides technological and educational support for both Faculty and students (including students both on campus and studying off campus).
