Schulich’s Office of Curriculum Innovation and Teaching Excellence

As of October 2020, Schulich’s new Office of Curriculum Innovation and Teaching Excellence (CITE) was created in response to the growing need for more high-quality teaching and learning support and development. This new office brings together the resources and expertise related to teaching, learning and program quality that are currently housed across three departments within the School: the Office of the Associate Dean Academic, the Schulich Centre for Teaching Excellence (SCTE), and Schulich IS&T. Over the next few months, the composition of the Teaching and Learning site will evolve to reflect these exciting new changes.

We’re here to support the School’s teaching and learning needs, both within and beyond the classroom. We offer a variety of consultation services for course design and delivery as well as workshops geared towards faculty development and best teaching practices. We also showcase the best of teaching and learning at Schulich on our website. Our aim is to keep faculty and students connected and inspired by featuring courses, instructors, news updates and practical teaching tips.
