The third year of Teaching & Learning Inquiry begins with articles that demonstrate a maturing view of the field. The work in these articles reflects the “vision of academia’s future” in which “inquiry, evidence, and innovation in teaching and learning are part of the fabric of everyday life” (Chick & Poole, 2015, p.1).
In this future, more educators will investigate meaningful questions to improve learning and teaching, and what’s known about learning and teaching. Teaching & Learning Inquiry will continue to showcase this progress, from the on-the-ground studies to the visionary aspirations that challenge the field to grow in exciting and effective directions.
Teaching & Learning Inquiry is edited by Gary Poole, the Associate Director of the School of Population and Public Health and a Senior Scholar in the Centre for Health Education Scholarship at the University of British Columbia, and Nancy Chick, the new University Chair in Teaching and Learning, Academic Director of the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning, and Professor of English at the University of Calgary.
