Festival of Teaching

2014 Festival of Teaching, Teaching Sustains

The University of Alberta’s annual Festival of Teaching is a year-round celebration of excellence and innovation in teaching.  Our goals are:  

  • to open multiple avenues for the U of A community to engage in a broad exploration and discussion of teaching and pedagogical methods, and  
  • to work in partnership with groups and units across campus to create and augment stimulating events with a pedagogical focus.

This year's festival examines the question of sustainable teaching and learning.
