The EdMedia Protégé Program, delivered through the Teaching and Learning Centre (TLC) at Simon Fraser University (SFU), supports faculty who are interested in being better media creators. The program helps faculty embed media in learning through media assets developed by teaching faculty, utilizing media mentors, and focused on course outcomes/objectives. The program has been well received by faculty and, in its third (next) instance, will incorporate a blended delivery model.
