Centre for Organizational Learning and Teaching
The Centre for Organizational Learning and Teaching (COLT) is at the heart of Centennial College's strategic commitment of 'learning through engagement'. Through a comprehensive array of learning and development programming, consultation and institutional capacity-building, the department engages with all employee groups across all college divisions and campuses, as well as externally with teaching and learning divisions and educators in other post-secondary institutions. The primary aim is to serve the college community as both a model and a hub for rich and transformative growth opportunities that advance their Commitments outlined in Centennial's Strategic Plan (Book of Commitments, Second Edition), as well as the themes and goals of Centennial's Academic Plan: Leading through Learning. As part of a learning-centred college, they encourage their employees to engage in an ongoing journey of personal and professional learning and growth. Individual growth happens within the context of networks of peer relationships and supports: a 'social ecosystem'. Through a variety of teaching and learning opportunities, their employees forge new connections and deepen and expand their knowledge, skills, and expertise. The faculty developers, technology trainers and learning and development specialists have collaborated in creating relevant and timely offerings to fit the many diverse needs and interests of their employee stakeholders, including those tailored especially for faculty, support staff, and administrators.
