The ALT Centre is pleased to announce registration is now open for the:

Spring 2024 Brescia Faculty Institute (BFI) - "What We're Taking With Us: Lessons in Teaching & Learning from Brescia University College" 

Wednesday, April 10th (Event: 8:00am – 12:00pm / Lunch: 12:00pm - 1:00pm)

Beginning with its founding as a university for women in 1919, Brescia has occupied a unique and special place in the world of higher education. The Ursulines set a strong foundation for teaching and learning at the College through their holistic approach to instruction and core values of wisdom, justice, and compassion. Over the years, we have combined this history with evidence-based practice, including our commitment to an outcomes-based approach to education. Our dedication to student-centered learning has set Brescia apart for over a century.

Our final Spring 2024 BFI offers an opportunity to gather together, celebrate, and reflect on the many lessons in teaching and learning we will each take with us into our next chapters as educators. In this half-day event, speakers will share the way their teaching philosophies and perspectives have been shaped by Brescia’s environment, from women’s education and feminist pedagogy to the legacy of the Brescia Competencies. Attendees will be invited to contemplate and discuss the teaching approaches, methods, and memories they will carry forward. We hope you’ll join us for a fond and fun farewell!
