Have you heard of the Teaching and Learning Support Service (TLSS)? Even if the name doesn’t ring a bell, you should know that this service has been on campus for over 15 years! Professors seeking expert advice on university teaching are the TLSS’s primary clients. Over the years, the TLSS structure and services have evolved to meet the needs of the academic staff it serves.
The following 10 points briefly summarize everything you need to know about the TLSS today:
The TLSS is the only university service that helps professors improve their teaching skills, design courses to meet student needs and enrich their students’ learning experience
The seventy members of the TLSS team include educational developers, instructional designers, technicians, photographers, graphic designers, website designers, classroom designers, video directors and producers, web programmers and training officers
Although TLSS workshops are primarily aimed at professors, any member of the University community interested in teaching and learning (including administrative staff members, graduate students, post-doctoral students, teaching assistants, department or program directors) is welcome to attend their free training sessions and monthly lectures
