Discover something new
The Taylor Institute is home to many innovative programs tailored to academic staff, students and postdoctoral scholars. We support our university with future-focused program delivery and new initiatives in online and blended learning, experiential and work-integrated learning, program innovation, equity, diversity and inclusion, and Indigenous Ways of Knowing. We partner with others within and beyond UCalgary to strengthen teaching and learning communities, cultures, and practices locally, nationally, and internationally.
We aim to create meaningful opportunities to link networks of educational leaders, academic staff, postdoctoral scholars, students, and staff, and to encourage knowledge exchange, collaboration, and relationship-building across multiple levels of our institution. We offer scholarly programs, workshops, resources, and events on diverse topics for all experience levels.
We strive to provide flexibility and access across multiple learning modalities and platforms, and we value the lived experiences of educators, encouraging reflection, dialogue, learning, and growth. We create multiple points of engagement for those new to teaching and then provide ongoing activities to develop expertise, community, and leadership.
The University of Calgary Teaching Awards program recognizes and celebrates outstanding contributions to teaching and learning.
