Students working in renovated Otto Maas lab

University Teaching Labs Working Group (UTLWG)

The UTLWG enhances teaching and learning at McGill by prioritizing teaching lab projects for funding that are aligned with University strategic directions and principles of good pedagogy.

 

Mandate

The UTLWG’s mandate is to:

  1. Develop, maintain, and apply research-based Principles to the renovation and upgrade of teaching labs.
  2. Establish multi-year needs and annual priorities for renovations to existing teaching labs across the University, and new teaching labs.
  3. Recommend funding for the creation, upgrade and maintenance of teaching labs and related equipment.
  4. Support University planning by identifying teaching lab priorities and designs that may benefit from funding opportunities that may arise.

For the purposes of this working group, “teaching labs” includes all discipline-specific teaching and learning spaces.

    McGill University is on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous people whose footsteps have marked this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
