About the 2022-2023 LTSI Annual Report 

Over the past year, the Division of Learning and Teaching Support and Innovation has undergone a transformative phase, marking its first full year under new leadership and contending with significant organizational changes, including University wide budget reductions.

We invite you to explore our key priorities and milestones in our comprehensive 2022-2023 LTSI Annual Report, or browse the highlighted sections below for a snapshot of our journey and achievements.

Our five priorities

Universal design and access

Creating an inclusive learning environment that accommodates the diverse needs of all students, ensuring equal access to educational resources and opportunities.

Highlighted projects:

Innovative teaching practices

Enhancement of teaching and learning methodologies used by instructors, faculty members and teaching assistants through a peer review of teaching practices, learning technologies and communities of practice

Highlighted projects:

Recognition of skill development & achievement

Development and recognition of the work at the university, including staff, instructors, students and campus collaborators through redesigning programs and introducing performance metrics that empowered growth opportunities for career advancement.

Highlighted projects:

Academic ethics and integrity in the age of technology

Prioritize and uphold academic integrity as technology and generative artificial intelligence increase, through exploration of responsible and ethical use of technological tools and innovations, guidance and implications to the campus community.

Highlighted projects:

Going forward

Reflecting upon this past year, we have several areas we wish to focus on in the year and years to come to support the university.

Focus areas include

  • Implementing a clarified mandate and scope
  • Redefining academic integrity
  • Rethinking assessment for a universal approach
  • Renewing our programming and offerings
  • Restructuring our portfolios*

*The forthcoming restructure will see the division consolidating into two core portfolios: Student Academic Success (SAS) and Curriculum & Teaching Innovation (CTI).  The SAS portfolio will enrich student experiences through the Centre for Academic Communication, Math and Stats Assistance Centre, and our student awards: JCURA and VKURA. The CTI portfolio will support faculty, instructors, and TAs in curriculum development, teaching excellence, grants and more. A new portfolio within CTI: Curriculum and Development, will be developed that includes curriculum designers dedicated to STEM and universal design for learning.

Lastly, the Community-Engaged Learning office will be moving to Co-op and Career Services in November 2023, to better align with UVic’s experiential learning mandate.
