The BCTLC mission is to provide local, provincial, and national leadership on issues, challenges, and direction regarding teaching, learning technologies, scholarly practice, student learning, and related topics. Through a close relationship with BCcampus, the BCTLC is able to facilitate communication and collaboration among members, represent provincial committees, and build partnerships designed to improve our provincial post-secondary education system.
The seven purposes of the Council are to:
- Create a provincial environment where emerging and challenging teaching, learning and technology issues can be candidly discussed, directions planned out and possible solutions presented to institutions for consideration.
- Fulfill an advocacy role, seeking to inform and persuade educational leaders for the development and sustainability of quality post-secondary education teaching, student learning, and learning technologies in the B.C. education system.
- Raise awareness and share knowledge around teaching and learning with individuals in decision-making and leadership positions across the whole education system.
- Facilitate communication and collaboration among members for purposes of advancing collective understandings, inter-institutional efficiencies and sharing services.
- Collaborate with other BCTLC affiliates and counterparts in the B.C. post-secondary system as necessary and appropriate.
- Build partnerships with external groups and institutions for the betterment of our provincial post-secondary education system and where possible, that of other provinces and nations.
- Have representation and/or ability to provide updates/reports to provincial committees and to decision-making bodies (The Research Universities Council of British Columbia – RUCBC, British Columbia Association of Institutes and Universities – BCAIU, BC Colleges, Ministry of Advanced Education).
We are extremely pleased to have a close partnership with BCcampus. This unique relationship further strengthens the contributions our organizations can make for British Columbia educators and students.
