XIV. Centre for Learning and Teaching

The Centre for Learning and Teaching (CLT) works in partnership with academic units, faculty members, and graduate students to enhance the practice and scholarship of learning and teaching at Dalhousie University. CLT takes an evidence-based approach to advocating for effective learning and teaching practices, curriculum planning, services to support the use of technology in education, and institutional policies and infrastructure to enhance the Dalhousie learning environment (See page 288 for more information about CLT services and resources).

Certificate in University Teaching and Learning: The Certificate program is offered to Doctoral students and Postdoctoral researchers by the CLT in collaboration with the Faculty of Graduate Studies. The purpose of the program is to assist academic units in preparing students for their teaching responsibilities and to enhance their professional development opportunities for other careers.

CLT also offers a non-credit course: Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (CNLT 5000). This course may be taken as part of the Certificate program, or separately. CNLT 5000 is a seminar course designed to bring together practical and theoretical aspects of learning and teaching in post-secondary settings.
