Teaching and Learning Centre

Vision and mission


Teaching and Learning offers transformational experiences that engage and provoke learners and educators in life-long, reciprocal learning. We nurture the development of a university culture that values continuous professional growth and promotes excellence and innovation in teaching and learning. Our vision is
grounded in principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion and is committed to Indigenizing higher education.


Teaching and Learning supports the goals of UFV by providing leadership, support and resources for the continuous advancement of evidence-based teaching and learning practices and scholarship. This includes strengthening capacities campus-wide through professional development for the teaching community as well as supporting the expansion and effective engagement of learning technologies and techniques. Teaching and Learning also provides academic supports for continued student success through a wide variety of programming provided by the  Supported Learning Groups.

Teaching and Learning Centre Values

The Teaching and Learning Division nurtures a community where faculty, staff, and students can build relationships and collaborate in the pursuit of transformative teaching and learning.  We empower educators with skills, agency and humility to develop teaching and learning experiences that meet the needs of all students through reflective and innovative approaches.

The TLC’s Evolving Commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Teaching and learning is a reciprocal process that reflects a deep care for human dignity and diversity.

At the Teaching and Learning Centre, we seek to uphold that dignity by learning from diverse faculty, staff, and students and acting with courage, integrity, and humility to address their needs.

UFV 2021-2026 Integrated Strategic Plan- Íyáqáwtxw

After two years of consultation with internal and external stakeholders, UFV's Senate and Board of Governors have approved our new Integrated Strategic Plan. Called Íyáqáwtxw — which means House of Transformation in the language of the Stó:lō First Nation, the plan provides us with an exciting path towards our Vision, and is strongly rooted in our Mission of Engaging Learners, Transforming Lives, and Building Community, as well as our institutional Values of Community, Inclusivity, Excellence, and Integrity.

Accomplishing the Strategic Imperatives of our Integrated Strategic Plan will require all of us in each area of the University to work together to ensure true transformation can take place. I am excited for the journey we are all about to embark on to making our collective vision a reality.

Dr. Joanne MacLean
President and Vice-Chancellor
