There are a number of people, resources and departments across campus who support the people of Queen's in the classroom. Here are some of the resources that are available through other departments across campus:

Learning Outcomes Project

Queen's is one of a consortium of three universities (including University of Guelph and University of Toronto) and three colleges, funded by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO) to assess transferable learning outcomes. Learning outcomes are statements of what a learner is expected to understand, value, or demonstrate after completion of a process of learning. The Learning Outcomes are measurable, and communicate expectations to learners about the skills, attitudes and behaviours they are expected to achieve after successful completion of a course, program or degree. Many jurisdictions and institutions now require learning outcomes, but there is still much to learn about assessing student learning. Accurate assessment of learning outcomes is an essential component of competency-based education.

Alma Mater Society

The Alma Mater Society of Queen’s University (AMS) is Canada’s oldest undergraduate student government. Its constitution takes precedence over all other student societies and organizations to which its members may belong. The AMS was incorporated in 1969 as a non-profit organization without share capital. Undergraduates obtain membership upon paying the mandatory student activity fee along with their tuition.

Queen's University International Centre

The Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC) is a support service for all members of the Queen’s community and through its activities promotes an internationally informed and cross-culturally sensitive learning environment.

Equity in the Classroom

Accessibility in the Classroom

Accessibility is a shared responsibility of everyone in the Queen's community. For educators, it is important to plan and design your course(s) so that the material is inherently inclusive and accessible for all. More than ever, students learn in a variety of ways, using different methods and media. Accessible teaching can minimize the need for individual support for students with disability while enhancing the learning of all students.
