This publication is dedicated to all “teachers” at Brock University, whether new to the institution or veteran faculty members. While the Brock Centre for Pedagogical Innovation provided the initiative for the compilation of this handbook, the first edition, published in 1994, was the result of a collaborative effort undertaken by the Centre and a number of Brock faculty and program staff committed to faculty development at our institution.

Please follow the links to the respective components of the guide below or contact the Centre for Pedagogical Innovation (formerly CTLET) about a full print copy.
