APC Subcommittee on Teaching and Learning (STL)

APC Subcommittee on Teaching and Learning (STL)

The STL was created in fall 2001 as a Senate Committee for a three-year term. At the end of that term, on April 21, 2004 Senate approved the STL's recommendation that the Committee on Teaching and Learning should revert to being a subcommittee of the Academic Policy Committee with a mandate which reads as follows:

  1. Recommend to the University through the Academic Policy Committee (APC) initiatives and policies to enhance the quality of teaching and learning.
  2. Consider medium and long-term trends and issues affecting post-secondary education as they would apply to McGill University, including, but not limited to, enhancing student engagement, online delivery of courses and programs in both campus-based and distance programs, alternate credit structures, feedback and assessment, experiential learning, and the integration of teaching and research.
  3. Report to Senate through APC once a year.

Its membership is broadly representative of the University community, and is defined to be:


Associate Provost (Teaching and Academic Planning) or designate, Chair

Dean of Students or designate

Director of Teaching and Learning Services or designate

Dean of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies or designate

Associate Provost (Equity and Academic Policies) or designate

One representative to be appointed by each Faculty, (staggered) three-year terms renewable

One representative to be appointed by the University Libraries

Two undergraduate student representatives

One graduate student representative

While this web page is accessible worldwide, McGill University is on land which has served and continues to serve as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. Teaching and Learning Services acknowledges and thanks the diverse Indigenous peoples whose footsteps mark this territory on which peoples of the world now gather. This land acknowledgement is shared as a starting point to provide context for further learning and action.
