The Institute for the Study of University Pedagogy (ISUP) is the centre for research on teaching and learning at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM). ISUP promotes the study of university pedagogy, especially the experiences of undergraduate students, through collaborative research, instruction, training, scholarship, and assessment.
ISUP was established in 2020 as a direct response to the 2017 UTM Academic Plan as well as President Gertler’s call for the reimagining and reinventing of undergraduate education in his Three Priorities for the University of Toronto.
Our faculty and staff support the Robert Gillespie Academic Skills Centre, the Teaching & Learning Collaboration, and utmONE, utmONE Scholars, and Foundational Skills courses. In the coming months, we will be inviting other faculty at UTM who are engaged in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) to join us for events and to establish cross-appointments.
