The BCTLC resulted from a shared vision from teaching and learning leaders at BC post-secondary institutions. Before we officially became the Council, several of our members envisioned and acted intentionally to bring together, recognize and leverage our pockets of expertise and interests. These grassroots efforts were aimed to address current issues, to better support the educators and administrators we advise, as well as our staff and to provide us with a network of supportive colleagues.
Now that the BCTLC is in place, our commitment and orientation towards shared goals are reflected partly through the work of action groups as described in this section.
Action Groups evolve from BCTLC members to address current interests/needs and with the intentions to undertake activity that would have an impact and come to some sort of conclusion at the end of a specified period of time. In this way, members can participate on related activity, report out at Fall and Spring Council meetings and draw activity to a close (should membership change).
Current Action Groups (2018-)
- K-12 Transitions
- Scholarly Teaching and Learning/Faculty research network (Pebble Project)
