What does it mean to say that a university education is “relevant?” And what is the connection between relevance and flexibility in education? How can SFU provide more relevant learning experiences to its students? Share your thoughts about the directions in which university teaching and learning is—and should be—headed at one of three World Cafe style consultative events hosted by the Task Force on Flexible Education in January and February. The cafes will provide a forum for large- and small-group dialogue centred around five themes:

  • Relevance
  • Program design
  • Teaching approaches
  • Infrastructure and support
  • Student agency

This is your opportunity to contribute to the development of principles and practices that will shape the future of SFU. We are eager to hear from faculty members, staff and students on all three campuses. Register today!
