The Gwenna Moss Centre for Teaching and Learning (GMCTL) has, since 2014/15, had GMCTL Faculty Fellows. These roles are filled by members of University of Saskatchewan faculty who set aside up to 1/2 day of their time per week to contribute to teaching and learning related work with and through the GMCTL. The Centre and the university benefits hugely from the contribution of these fantastic Fellows whose contribution is planned to align with their particular expertise and experience as well as university priorities. Their work also assists in keeping the GMCTL services informed by and in alignment with the needs and interests of those we serve.
