With support from college leadership, the TEF was developed by the Teaching Excellence Working Group, comprising faculty from each academic centre and the Educational Development Team, located in the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Innovation (CTLI). In addition to the working group, a variety of other stakeholders were consulted including Human Resources, Student Affairs departments, and the Lethbridge College Faculty Association.
Milestones in the engagement process included:
- a presentation at a Lethbridge College Town Hall meeting in February 2020 to update all staff and faculty on the project purpose and goals and offer an opportunity for written feedback.
- four information sessions to update instructors on the project purpose and to seek focus-area feedback on the dimensions, areas of focus, and the visual representation of the framework.
Thank you to Gillian Comchi, Julie Deimert, Jim Laing, Ronald Papp, Shane Roersma, and Ibrahim Turay for their engagement as part of the Teaching Excellence Working Team.
