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:

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. Raise awareness and share knowledge around teaching and learning with individuals in decision-making and leadership positions across the whole education system.
    4. Facilitate communication and collaboration among members for purposes of advancing collective understandings, inter-institutional efficiencies and sharing services.
    5. Collaborate with other BCTLC affiliates and counterparts in the B.C. post-secondary system as necessary and appropriate.
    6. 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.
    7. 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.


Good teaching may overcome a poor choice of technology, but technology will never save bad teaching.
