Camosun College places high value on teaching excellence and puts the  student experience at the centre of all it pursues. In contrast to universities, as a community college, Camosun is steeped in a commitment to applied learning and a culture of scholarship and research and its associated structures is not as central to its practices. This session will explore how Camosun College promotes evidence based approaches to evolve and enhance teaching practices outside of the typical approaches employed by universities.  The session will provide an opportunity for other colleges  and institutes that face similar structural and cultural challenges to learn how Camosun is moving towards a more intentional approach to inquiry and scholarship.  The presenters will: share how Camosun showcases exemplary teaching practices; detail the role of Innovation funds, managed by the President’s office,  in stimulating teaching innovation; reflect on the connection between applied research and curriculum; and the explore the emerging  policy work that will encourage  the scholarship of teaching and learning while encompassing an indigenous perspective to research.  Participants will be invited to share their college based practices and consideration will be given to how the conversation can continue beyond the symposium.
