University Teaching Labs Working Group (UTLWG)


The University Teaching Labs Working Group (UTLWG) enhances teaching and learning at McGill by prioritizing teaching lab projects for funding that are aligned with University strategic directions and principles of good pedagogy. Its mandate is to:

  1. Develop, maintain and apply research-based Principles to the renovation and upgrade of teaching labs.
  2. Establish multi-year needs and annual priorities for renovations to existing teaching labs across the University, and new teaching labs.
  3. Recommend funding for the creation, upgrade and maintenance of teaching labs and related equipment.
  4. Support University planning by identifying teaching lab priorities and designs that may benefit from funding opportunities that may arise.

For the purposes of this working group, "teaching labs" includes all discipline-specific teaching and learning spaces.

    McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. McGill honours, recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which we meet today.
