University Learning Centre / Gwenna Moss Centre for Teaching Effectiveness
The Gwenna Moss Centre for Teaching Effectiveness’s (GMCTE) and the University Learning Centre’s (ULC) mission is “to place learning at the centre” by fostering a positive culture of learning and teaching, nurturing proficient and effective learning and teaching, connecting theory with practice, and promoting mentorship as a foundation of learning and teaching.
The Gwenna Moss Centre offers courses, workshops and hosts events for faculty and graduate students about teaching, learning, and professional skills. Our specialists provide support for innovative curriculum development and instructional design, as well as professional, confidential consultations related to teaching. We provide guidance and advice on learning technologies and distributed education. The GMCTE provides resources to enhance teaching and learning and administers, on behalf of the Provost’s office, various University of Saskatchewan awards and grants related to teaching excellence.
The ULC seeks to foster a culture of learning in a hospitable student-centred environment at the heart of campus. The ULC offers academic support to U of S students, including: free workshops, online and in-person writing help, math and statistics help, study skills support, technology help, and community service-learning opportunities. The Centre also works with the broader campus community to facilitate experiential learning opportunities for students. The “Peer-Assisted Learning” peer mentor program is fundamental to all support offerings at the ULC, through the involvement of nearly 100 academically strong undergraduate students in the development of learning support programming.
