Teaching chairs support excellence in teaching and learning at the Faculty of Business Administration. They promote the scholarship of teaching and learning and develop strategies to address common challenges while collaborating with colleagues both within and outside the faculty to advance the objectives of the teaching and learning framework at Memorial University.
Teaching chairs are experienced and effective teachers and scholars. They provide leadership by developing curriculum, mentoring junior faculty, leading teaching improvement workshops and seminars, and maintaining active research programs. They support curriculum development and teaching innovation, and provide co-curriculum supports including, but not limited to, advising students teams, clubs and groups.
