Teaching and Learning Canada is an incorporated and registered charity, originally created by the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE), who provided seed funding for TLC and with whom it maintains close ties.
Established in 2011, its goal is to promote and enhance the quality of teaching and learning in Canadian post-secondary education through:
- Sponsoring and disseminating research on effective college and university teaching.
- Raising public awareness about the important issues affecting college and university teaching through conferences, colloquia, publications and through the media.
- Forging links with organizations and individuals, both nationally and internally, with similar goals.
- Co-sponsoring regional events across Canada on post-secondary teaching.
By-laws were approved at the annual general meeting of TLC in Sydney, Nova Scotia on June 20, 2013.
