Welcome to the Teaching Support Centre (TSC) at Western

The mission of the Teaching Support Centre is twofold. First, we foster and enhance best practices in teaching and learning at Western University, in partnership with Western Libraries, the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, and Information Technology Services. Second, we advocate for teaching excellence and scholarship at Western, nationally, and internationally. If you are involved in teaching at Western University, we look forward to working with you! Come see us in the Centre in The D.B. Weldon Library.
