In 2015, the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Innovation (CTLI) at the Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) began working with the team at the Universidad de Guadalajara’s (UdeG) Coordinación de Innovación Educativa y Pregrado (CIEP).
The goal of the collaboration with the large public university, comprised of 15 campuses and more than 100,000 students, was to produce a unique faculty development program to transform teaching and learning at UdeG. The result was a program in Student Centred and Mobile Learning, dubbed “The Agora.”
By December 2016, over 400 UdeG professors will have completed the program, and a formal research study is underway to evaluate the effectiveness of the program in transforming teaching and learning.
