Administrative history

The Teaching and Learning Centre (TLC) of Mount Saint Vincent University supports the advancement of teaching and learning in face-to-face and online contexts. They provide academic support through faculty teaching, development and training, collaborating with academic departments on the planning, development and delivery of online courses, programs and resources that are accessible to students. TLC also supports student learning with online tools like Moodle, Blackboard Collaborate, Office365, etc. The centre’s mandate is two-fold: instructional design and instructional (professional) development.

The unit began in 1982 as a pioneer of distance education in the region. That year, it first began offering televised courses. This program was known as DUET (Distance University Education via Television). In the 1990s, web-based courses were introduced. They have also had an important role in collaboration on international education partnerships such as with the University of St. Martin and Bermuda College. Non-credit lifelong learning and professional development opportunities have also been under this unit’s mandate.
