Teaching Excellence and Academic Quality
Centennial College is committed to the vision of transforming lives and communities through learning. This vision is actualized through providing all students with a transformative learning experience of the highest caliber, leading to meaningful work and meaningful lives. Our Book of Commitments (Second Edition), and our Academic Plan: Leading through Learning recognize that students' learning happens both within and beyond face-to-face and online classrooms, and is most effective when facilitated through the principles and applications of current and cutting-edge adult learning models and approaches.
Informed by research evidence on high impact teaching practices, faculty development and organizational learning, the Centre for Organizational Learning and Teaching (COLT) and the Centre for Academic Quality (CAQ) provide a range of supports and offerings to advance innovation in teaching excellence and academic quality, supporting student engagement and success. These offerings focus on teaching skills, quality review and assessment, academic scholarship, and personal wellness, and integrate Centennial's emphasis on global citizenship, internationalization and inclusion.
