Enhancing Learning and Teaching in Engineering (ELATE)

Enhancing Learning and Teaching in Engineering (ELATE) is an initiative whose mission is to foster learning communities comprising of undergraduate and graduate students, teaching assistants, and academic and non-academic staff with the objective of enhancing and promoting excellence in the learning and teaching experience in the Faculty of Engineering.

Over the years, ELATE has established a faculty learning community whereby professors and instructors can get together and share their experiences with different teaching and assessing strategies, hosted annual conferences on teaching and learning practices (including some directed at students), provided support for professors and instructors on developing their teaching strategies and pedagogies, and established several initiatives on student learning and involvement in course design.


Strategic Objectives

  • Support a culture of critical thinking about teaching and learning
  • Promote the use of evidence-based practices in teaching and learning
  • Nurture a community of life-long learners within the Faculty of Engineering
  • Develop and support research in Engineering Education
