TransCanada International Forum on Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

The Institute sponsors an annual Forum on Scholarship of Teaching and Learning which brings together senior higher-education administrators, private and public-sector stakeholders, and campus leaders who are committed to fostering and promoting systematic scholarly inquiry across the international post-secondary landscape. These events are often organized in partnership with national and international organizations and societies, and range in focus from institutional leadership to the role of students as co-researchers. 

In 2014, TransCanada PipeLines Limited became a co-sponsor of the Forum.
