    STLHE Conference: Session on Instructor Track 

    I just returned from the Society for Teaching & Learning in Higher Ed (http://www.stlhe.ca/) annual conference in Saskatoon. Made some very interesting connections with colleagues from various disciplines from across the country. Would be great to see a bigger contingent from UBC next year in Montreal!

    There’s a group, led by Sue Vajoczki, from EOS/Geog, at McMaster, conducting research describing the ways the Instructor track manifests in Ontario. I asked for her report but there is a required delayed release from her funding agency, the HEQCO: Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario. (Do we have a similar body in BC?) Anyway, the report is due to be released here this fall. Weren’t any big surprises in her presentation, but great to see research about us happening!
