The learning spaces of the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning are primarily used for teaching and learning projects conducted by University of Calgary instructors.
However, the Taylor Institute also wants to encourage members of the campus community in their activities designed to better understand and improve student learning and the teaching that facilitates that learning. Applications to host these events in the learning studios or in the Institute's public spaces will be considered for times when space is available. Protecting an environment that supports the scheduled course projects will also be considered.
Examples of such activities include but are not limited to the following:
- student or course-related poster sessions,
- showcase of student projects,
- instructors' discussion of book on teaching in the discipline,
- workshop on teaching in large classrooms, or
- workshop on integrating Top Hat in the classroom.
Anyone using these spaces should first read the Principles and Policies for Taylor Institute Spaces.
