Exceptional teaching is one of the hallmarks of Mount Allison.
The Purdy Crawford Teaching Centre, often referred to as the PCTC, helps nurture exceptional teaching by creating a community that embraces teaching quality at the University. The PCTC supports a scholarly approach to teaching, using evidence-based practices to promote excellence. The Centre initiates programs and holds workshops for faculty with the aim of further increasing teaching and learning effectiveness, providing information about the latest teaching tools, and providing resources to support their implementation and integration into Mount Allison classrooms.
