Spring intensive: Towards scholarly teaching

Visit the 2015 Towards Scholarly Teaching website

Towards Scholarly Teaching is a unique professional development experience. This four day intensive offers post-secondary educators the opportunity to create strategies, develop ideas and rethink approaches to their own scholarly practice through participation in small group seminars. Together we will examine what we define as scholarly teaching and dig into aspects of our own work as it relates to this practice. You will have additional optional opportunities including book study, journal club, discussion circle and recreational choices (climbing wall, yoga).

As a participant you will choose a program strand to explore for the full intensive. Mornings are committed to learning and working together in your chosen strand and it is imperative that you participate in your seminar group throughout the week. Early mornings and afternoons offer optional opportunities to create, learn and play with your colleagues from across the country.

The program strands are:

  • Creativity and Innovation with Learning Technologies
  • Teacher Presence and Communication
  • Teaching Philosophy and Portfolio
  • Course Redesign: An Approach to Curriculum Development

Interested in participating?

The Spring Intensive is offered each year in late-May or early-June. Mount Royal faculty and staff, along with external participants are welcome to attend. The Spring Intensive is suited to anyone involved in the post-secondary educational context who is seeking a space to renew and refresh while developing their scholarly practice. Participation is capped at 60 participants.
