The University of Alberta is home to Canada’s largest academic staff association and leads the country with 38 academic staff who have received national 3M Teaching Fellowships, Canada’s highest award for excellence in undergraduate university teaching.
Teaching excellence at the U of A reflects a campus-wide focus on teaching and learning, which begins with class sizes that are among the smallest at major research universities in Canada.
Support for Teachers
Teachers at the U of A are also given unmatched support in the classroom, thanks to the creation of the Centre for Teaching and Learning, which equips instructors with practical resources and tools to help them excel.
Teaching and learning at the U of A is celebrated on a grand scale annually through the week-long Festival of Teaching.
