Memorial University’s first-ever comprehensive Teaching and Learning Framework was developed in spring 2011. The creation of the framework was the foundation upon which the university has been steadily growing the teaching and learning community through projects, programs and initiatives that benefit students and educators at all levels and help further develop a community committed to excellence in teaching and learning.
The Teaching and Learning Framework Strategic Plan 2014-2017 outlined recommendations, work completed to date, priorities and actions for the next three years.
The Office of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) has initiated a review to assess the outcomes of the Teaching and Learning Framework and pave the way for a new framework. A review committee has been established and mandated with completing the review and making recommendations for next steps.
In spring 2015, Memorial University’s first Chairs in Teaching and Learning were appointed. They are supporting teaching and learning across the university, collaborating with colleagues to advance the objectives of the Teaching and Learning Framework, promoting the scholarship of teaching and learning and developing strategies to address common challenges.
The Chair in Teaching and Learning for the School of Social Work is Dr. Delores Mullings. Visit her blog.
