The Taylor Institute is the mechanism through which quality teaching and learning, experiential learning and initiatives like the institutional support of learning technologies can be realized. The Taylor Institute Unit Plan further lays that groundwork.
The 2019-20 academic year was undoubtedly challenging and complex as we continued to respond to the uncertainty of the global pandemic. Through all of this, we’ve fostered connection with our colleagues across UCalgary to navigate and support our academic community.
In 2020, we supported our university community’s transition from emergency remote teaching to intentional and research-informed online learning. In March 2020, we raced to support our campus community of over 38,000 students, faculty and staff to shift more than 6,000 courses to remote teaching and learning to ensure everyone’s health and safety during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Together we are transforming how we teach and learn. 2018-19 was another year of substantial growth at the Taylor Institute. The development of the experiential learning team and a shift toward undergraduate research through the PURE program marked important progress as we move forward in achieving our key priorities.
2016/17 marked a year of growth and learning at the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning. We came to better understand the full potential of the Taylor Institute building and the impact that spaces can have on learning and student engagement.
The 2015/16 academic year was a historic one for us at the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning. Thanks to the generosity of the Taylor Family Foundation, we moved from the cozy fifth floor of the Biological Sciences building into our bright new building at the heart of campus.
