Welcome to the Teaching Support Centre (TSC) at Western

The Teaching Support Centre (TSC) is the teaching hub of the university.  We support the university’s teaching and learning mission by providing orientation, training, mentorship, research and innovation opportunities for instructors at Western so that, they, in turn can create high quality undergraduate and graduate learning experiences for students. We build bridges between disciplines and create scholarly communities of practice that allow instructors at Western to share innovative approaches to teaching with each other and inspire student engagement throughout our campus.

The Teaching Support Centre is recognized nationally and internationally for its research-based practice; comprehensive teaching assistant and international graduate student programs; extended teaching certificate programs; purple guide series; and as the home of The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
