Canadian postsecondary institutions are under growing pressure to adapt and innovate approaches to teaching and learning. Many instructors are integrating community engaged teaching and learning (CETL) across a range of course levels and types. CETL courses ensure attention to critical learning outcomes for students as well as meaningful community collaboration and action (Morton, Varghese, & Thomson, unpublished manuscript).
CESI is offering a bursary covering the cost of the full registration to the Certificate in Knowledge Mobilization for up to three graduate students or postdocs at the University of Guelph.
