Indigenous Education Resources

The Indigenous Education Resources are intended to help inform, inspire, and support professional development in Indigenous education. This initiative aligns with the implementation of the Werklund School of Education Indigenous Strategy.

Teaching Assistant Preparation Program

This program provides supports for graduate students and post-doctoral scholars interested in developing skills to serve as teaching assistants. Participants attend four workshops with the Office of Teaching and Learning, four workshops with the Taylor Institute and observe two classroom sessions. Those completing the program receive a microcredential and a digital badge for their curricular record.

Teaching and Learning Vignettes

In recent years, the Werklund School of Education has supported research by its instructors in teaching and learning practices and research. Many of these instructors have shared the results of their practice and research in the form of brief, peer-reviewed articles called vignettes. These vignettes have been published in the PRISM repository through the university library, to access this research visit the link below and if you wish to contribute a vignette, email us at tandl@ucalgary.ca.

SoTL Grants & Awards

The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) integrates teaching, learning and research. Faculty seed grants and University grants are available each year for SoTL projects. Faculty awards and University awards are given each year to celebrate excellence in teaching and learning. 


Instructor Resources

We provide instructors and teaching assistants tools and resources addressing a wide range of aspects of instruction.  In addition, the eLearn page with the university has guidance on the use of many of the technologies that the university supports campus-wide.


AI and the Classroom

As Generative Artificial Intelligence becomes a more prevalent part of education at all levels, we will be looking at ways to share research, resources and other information as it emerges. If you are interested in joining our Artificial Intelligence Community of Practice, please contact us.
