Understanding and Changing Institutional Teaching Culture: Cultivating Effective Practices
Session Time and Location
How do we know whether an institution values quality teaching? Nine Canadian teaching centre leaders have developed a set of Teaching Culture Perception Surveys to better understand the perceived teaching culture at our institutions (Kustra, et al, 2014). After providing a project overview, we will engage participants in exploring elements of our survey reports and a supplemental resource that identifies effective practices to affect institutional teaching culture. By the end of the session, participants will be able to articulate key cultural indicators and share effective practices that foster a culture that values teaching.
