The CETL is now accepting submissions for the Teaching and Learning Priority Fund (Fredericton campus). Submissions are accepted online via eServices, and the submission deadline is Friday, Feb. 28, 2020.

Would you like to try something new in your class that results in more effective and efficient student learning? Is there a project you’ve considered but don’t have the funds? This is your opportunity! The VP Academic (Fredericton)’s Office has put aside money to support teaching and learning projects. If you have a project in mind, this is the time to apply.
