Interdisciplinary, Student-Centred, Inclusive: Welcome to ISUP

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 advances the study of university pedagogy, and in collaboration with interdisciplinary faculty, staff, and students across UTM, we support the development of students’ academic skills through courses, consultations, workshops and programs. These offerings are all informed by our commitment to innovative, inclusive, and accessible pedagogy.

Additional opportunities offered in partnership with ISUP:

  • In addition to first-year foundational courses, students at all stages in their academic career can connect with the Robert Gillespie Academic Skills Centre (RGASC) through individual consultations, workshops, and programs.
  • Faculty, sessional instructors, librarians, staff teaching assistants, graduate students and postdocs can connect with the Teaching and Learning Collaboration (TLC), a community with a shared interest in teaching and learning at UTM.
