History of Teaching & Learning at MHC

The area of Teaching and Learning at Medicine Hat College was formed in 2018 when it combined Library Services and Centre for Innovation and Teaching Excellence (CITE) under a unified mandate to promote teaching and learning and create synergies that bridge the relationship between faculty and student support.

Teaching and Learning is a pan-institutional academic area reporting to the Vice President, Academic at MHC.

CITE has taken on many names over the years as the focus and range of services it provided expanded. The first iteration focused on the use of new learning technologies under the name Technology Support Centre. In 2007, the centre was renamed to Educational Technology Services (ETS). As faculty increasingly embraced learning technologies, the inquiry into the study of teaching and learning rose, the area was renamed once again to the Centre for Innovation and Teaching Excellence in 2014.
