Faculty & Instructors

We support UTM's teaching and learning mission by providing support for instructors to help them create the best possible learning experiences for their students.

Teaching & Learning Support

We provide confidential individual consultations for instructors. Appointments can be booked through the Instructional Support Portal

The Teaching and Learning Collaboration (TLC) at UTM aims to build a community centered on a shared interest in teaching and learning. The TLC hosts a variety of professional development opportunities for UTM faculty and instructors, including workshops, reading groups, and day-long events like the UTM Ready, Set, Teach Day. 

Instructors are welcome to contact us at any time of the year for support and specialized training for their Teaching Assistants. We can help lead benchmarking sessions or provide discipline-specific and generic training for first-time TAs.

Academic Skills Support for your students

We offer one-on-one instruction for students in writing, mathematics, scientific problem-solving, and general academic skills development (e.g., time management, note-taking, lecture-listening, multiple-choice test preparation, critical reading). We offer a variety of academic skills workshops focused on reading and writing skills, research skills, English language skills. We also offer on demand workshops, by request. We have developed a number of online academic resources, covering topics related to writing, study skills, math, academic integrity, and supporting English Language Learners

Through a peer-to-peer learning model, we provide an opportunity for students to join facilitated study groups, which provide an opportunity for students to regularly review and practice discipline-related academic skills in a structured and collaborative setting.

Funding for Initiatives and Programs You Can Implement Within Your Courses

We work with instructors to support projects that integrate instruction and learning activities focused on numeracy (quantitative literacy), writing, and supporting English Language Learners (ELL). Through each of these initiatives, we are available to consult on project proposals, provide specialized TA training and programming for your students, and provide project assessment support.
