Funding Opportunities

The Writing Development Initiative (WDI) provides financial and pedagogical support for projects that integrate more writing instruction into courses through assignments, direct instruction, providing feedback, and/or TA instruction. 

Teaching and Learning Collaboration

The Teaching and Learning Collaboration (TLC) is a community of colleagues centred on a shared interest in teaching and learning, offering professional development through workshops and events, pedagogical reading groups, and teaching and learning exchange lunches.

An initiative of the Office of the Dean in collaboration with RGASC, the TLC fosters a culture of teaching excellence and innovation to enhance student learning across our campus. The TLC provides an avenue for instructors to collaborate, share ideas, engage in critical discussion, explore challenges, and build teaching and learning expertise.
