Ontario universities are continually reviewing and reinvigorating teaching and learning strategies to ensure that students leave universities prepared for a successful future. Examples of innovative strategies in teaching and learning were recently published in a report called Beyond the Sage on the Stage. Universities are also engaged in a variety of research initiatives designed to improve teaching in collaboration with the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO). These include: skills for student-focused learning, effective use of technology, orienting new faculty and graduate students to best practices and degree program restructuring.
Ontario universities have also implemented a new Quality Assurance Framework based on learning outcomes and third party scrutiny. A report called Ensuring the Value of University Degrees in Ontario outlines how learning outcomes are embedded in university courses and how degree level expectations define what university graduates know and what skills they have acquired from their degree.
