The Office of the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) is committed to advancing the university's academic mission by fostering a stimulating intellectual environment in which all members of Queen's community can continue to excel in his or her learning, teaching, and research endeavours.
Our work supports the academic priorities and goals of the University, to provide all Queen's students with the finest educational experience possible.
The Teaching and Learning Action Plan
The Teaching and Learning Action Plan comprises the final recommendations of the Provost’s Task Force on the Student Learning Experience, a group of faculty, staff and students given the mandate to propose specific sustainable initiatives and processes that would enhance the student learning experience. The Task Force was asked to make recommendations for academic and learning support units, to support the Queen’s University Quality Assurance Processes, and to propose infrastructure, policy, and resource requirements related to teaching and learning.

At the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) we believe that teaching, and the development of teaching, is a scholarly activity and a professional responsibility of all academics. Our vision is to serve as agents for influencing good teaching practices across the university. Our primary goal is to enhance the quality of student learning and to support all who are engaged in a teaching role at Queen's University. To continue the quality of excellence of teaching and learning at Queen's University, the Centre of Teaching and Learning is dependent upon the generosity and support of Queen's alumni and friends.
The difference your gift will make:
A gift of support to these programs will ensure a quality learning experience for our students and will enhance teaching practices for our faculty. Your support of various projects and programs will encourage individuals to continue the use of innovative ideas, develop opportunities to increase student engagement, and allow more instructors to engage in educational development. Also a donation to this project will support the advancement of Queen's vision of achieving excellence and quality in higher learning through the enhancement of teaching and learning.
Benefits of Support:
By encouraging wide dissemination of excellent teaching across the university, a donation will contribute to the enhancement of student learning and the development of exceptional students. A donor will therefore gain the respect and loyalty of not only higher education administrators and professionals, but also of the students and their families that support their educational goals. Such loyalty and respect may ultimately translate into lifelong support of a donor's products or services.
