College of Discovery, Creativity, and Innovation

The College of Discovery, Creativity, and Innovation (CDCI) is the Taylor Institute’s arm devoted to providing and supporting different types of learning experiences that bring together students, faculty and community through discovery, creativity, and innovation, cutting across the normal boundaries within the university. Building a community of discovery, creativity and innovation is a core objective of the University of Calgary’s Energize Eyes High Strategy. The CDCI supports experiential and community-engaged learning opportunities through the university’s first Experiential Learning Hub.

Through authentic, inquiry-led learning, the Global Challenges courses offer students opportunities to expand their experience in the classroom and into the community. Prepare to discover, create and innovate!
In the spirit of collaborative culture, the College of Discovery, Creativity, and Innovation aims to create shared experiences and new ideas for teaching and learning through Communities of Practice for instructors.
We believe that learning happens by doing, not just in the classroom but out in the world. The Experiential Learning Hub is a resource for connecting students with experiential learning opportunities across campus.
Directing your learning takes you on a journey of exploring ideas, sharing them, having others connect in building them, and expressing them to others. The PIVOT Gallery is the space for just that!
