Brock University

Brock University is one of Canada’s top post-secondary institutions. Located in historic Niagara region, Brock offers all the benefits of a young and modern university in a safe, community-minded city with beautiful natural surroundings.

With more than 19,000 students in seven diverse Faculties, Brock University offers an academic experience that’s second to none. Brock’s degree programs are designed with the student’s future in mind. Focusing on the student career with co-op and service learning options that provide maximum exposure to their chosen field of study.

At Brock, we pride ourselves on integrating experience into your studies by offering a rigorous co-op program and a variety of hands-on learning opportunities in your academic program. Work with our career team to successfully translate your experiences, both inside and outside the classroom, as you launch yourself into your career.

The Brock Competencies and Skills Translation project started with the goal of developing and integrating campus-wide competencies by mapping the knowledge, skills, and attributes that students develop through curricular and co-curricular experience and reflection. Ten core competencies were identified through research, consultation with a campus-wide advisory committee, and student feedback in the form of focus groups. The Brock Core Competencies are integrated into CCEE programming as a tool for reflection, development of learning outcomes and supporting students with career readiness. Currently, discussions are underway regarding campus-wide integration and the development of Faculty-specific competencies.

Brock University continues to stay committed to ensure students have the opportunity to engage with work experiences that are directly related to their degree programs. Brock has been proud to offer experiential education in 100% of our programs. As a result of the effects of COVID19, student work-integrated learning (WIL) experiences have been impacted. While many programs were able to continue in co-operative education and internships, practicums in the health care and other industries were greatly affected. Brock is continuing to support our faculty, students and community partners in their engagement in quality WIL programming and while various industries welcome student back to their organizations, as long as public health guidelines and protocols are being followed, we will continue to provide safe and supportive opportunities for our students to apply their learning to industry and community settings.

The university fosters excellence in teaching and learning through pedagogical innovation, curricular and co-curricular experiential learning opportunities, and a commitment to student well-being and success.

The Centre for Pedagogical Innovation (CPI) is committed to fostering a culture of excellence in teaching and learning across Brock University. The teacher will be working while learning and developing:

  • Instructional Development: Advancing the knowledge, skills, and attitudes about teaching and learning, CPI supports instructors in their instructional development
  • Technology-enabled Learning: Consultation and support regarding digital tools for teaching and learning.
  • Curriculum Design: CPI is available to facilitate instructors and departments through the process of curricular re-imagination at the course and program level.
  • Evidence of Effective Teaching: Beyond the end of term course evaluation instrument, there is a large spectrum of activities to assist you in reflecting on your teaching.
