Festival of Teaching
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.
