Senate Committee on Teaching and Learning (SCTL)

The broad mandate of the Senate Committee on Teaching and Learning is to support and advance teaching and learning at the University. The committee shall send recommendations to Senate regarding university policies associated with teaching and learning, including institution-wide classroom and virtual teaching spaces, learning technologies, student accessibility, and student retention/success initiatives. The committee shall also adjudicate selected instructional development grant programs, referee the teaching and instructional assistant awards of excellence, and liaise with other university committees related to teaching and the student experience.

The agenda will be posted approximately one week in advance of the meeting and approved minutes will follow once approved at the subsequent meeting.  Full agenda packages can be accessed on Laurier Connect.

  • 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM Barry Ace: Coalesce, Mixed Media Installation (Opening)

    Join us to celebrate the final exhibition of the season.

    Coalesce presents a fusion of distinct Anishinaabeg aesthetics of the Great Lakes’ region with the refuse from Western society’s technological and digital age. This entanglement of materials intentionally shifts the object’s materiality and its accepted paradigm within the physical world. Through this integration and juxtaposition of recognizable Anishinaabeg materials used in Anishinaabeg material culture (e.g. glass beads, porcupine quills), with contemporary electronic materials (e.g. capacitors and resistors), the exhibition will challenge viewers to reject and re-examine notions of cultural status.

    11:45 AM - 1:00 PM Student Recital

    Meet the future of classical musicians at our weekly Student Recital featuring current Laurier Faculty of Music students.


    11:50 AM - 1:00 PM The Buzz about Bumble Bees!


    • Hayley Tompkins (University of Guelph & Wildlife Preservation Canada)
    • Genevieve Rowe (Wildlife Preservation Canada)

    Bumble bees are important pollinators of many food crops, as well as trees and flowering plants in natural ecosystems. Not much is known about the nesting ecology of bumble bees, but researchers with the University of Guelph and Wildlife Preservation Canada are working to fill in the gaps.

    Join us on March 26 at 12:00 p.m. to learn more about where bumble bees nest and why, and get some tips on identifying common and rare species.

    At the end of the talk, participants will have the opportunity to install some artificial nest boxes and can sign up to survey for bumble bees at Pinery Provincial Park this summer as part of a formal citizen science program. Installing boxes following the workshop will require a 10 minute walk to the Laurier Food Forest located on the Northdale Campus.

    Lunch is provided for people who register by March 22!
