ELATE (Enhancing Learning and Teaching in Engineering)

Enhancing Learning and Teaching in Engineering (ELATE) is one of the Faculty of Engineering’s four initiatives whose mission is to foster learning communities comprising of undergraduate and graduate students, teaching assistants, and academic and non-academic staff with the overall objective of enhancing and promoting excellence in the learning and teaching experience in 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 an annual conference on teaching and learning practises (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 to involve students in course design. ELATE also works closely with Engaged Learning in Engineering (ELINE), the EUS-run committee focused on promoting a culture of engaged learning among engineering students.
