Centre for Teaching and Learning

Algoma University’s special mission is to be “a teaching-oriented university that provides programs in liberal arts and sciences, and professional programs [and to] cultivate cross-cultural learning between Aboriginal Communities and other communities” (Algoma University Strategic Plan, 2021-2026).

The Teaching & Learning resources provided here aim to support our special mission, to foster quality teaching, to inspire student learning, and to create a culture of scholarly and effective teaching at Algoma University. We are dedicated to ensuring both faculty and students have the resources they need to thrive in their environments. Our mission is to provide the support needed for the advancement of evidence-based teaching and learning practices, by cultivating Pedagogical Excellence, Mentorship, and Professional Development. In support of these goals, we offer online resources, LMS support, one-on-one consultations, workshops and multimedia design assistance.
