Professional development for post-secondary educators

Since announcing the project, we have developed the beginnings of the Teaching and Learning Professional Development (TLPD), a professional development resource and portal sharing offerings by and for the B.C.’s post-secondary community. In early 2018, we reached out to the post-secondary teaching and learning faculty, instructors and staff for their input on this web resource and what would be most helpful to them. Based on the substantial response from the survey, which we have shared in this report, as well as, suggestions from our Advisory group and additional user testing, we are pleased to share the completion of phase one of this project.
