The Learning and Teaching Framework [PDF] promotes continual improvement in learning and teaching practices across
As a collaborative effort among BCIT stakeholders, the Learning and Teaching Framework (L&TF) provides ideas for how your school, program, faculty—and you—can support BCIT education principles in practice.
The Learning and Teaching Innovation Grant
The Learning and Teaching Innovation Grant [PDF] provides faculty, staff, and other service departments with funds and support for initiatives that directly align with the L&TF and reflect the spirit of a polytechnic “learning-by-doing” methodology.
The grant has four categories of funding: 1) to learn about the framework and collaborate with your department; 2) to reflect on and enhance your current teaching practices and share your findings with your community; 3) to innovate and implement a new idea; and 4) to fund a back-fill for your regular duties.
