Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

This institutional program enables fellows to pursue individual projects designed to enhance teaching quality. Fellows share these insights and collaborate with faculty and staff to promote teaching excellence and student success across the university community.

The Laurier Teaching Fellows are currently pursuing and have completed projects focused on:

A common thread through all active fellowship projects is the leadership they provide within their faculty, campus communities, and beyond for innovation in and improvement of the student learning experience.

Teaching and Learning is not prescriptive in defining the field of research a fellow should follow. Each fellow must have a clearly defined teaching development or research project focused on increasing instructional excellence at Laurier.

The types of projects a future fellow may wish to pursue, could include:

  • Developing a system of metrics for assessing teaching quality and learning effectiveness.
  • Driving curriculum innovation (e.g. interdisciplinary teaching or internationalisation of the curriculum).
  • Establishing a discipline-specific teaching development program for teaching assistants.
  • Integrating current teaching and learning research into their course or curriculum.
  • Stimulating the adoption of high-impact practices within a program.

"As a teaching fellow, I have the privilege to support and be supported by colleagues with a genuine commitment to respond to the challenges of teaching today with the intent of making an impact on and inspiring the young people who are the future of our country."

– Gavin Brockett, Laurier Teaching Fellow
