CBS Office of Educational Scholarship and Practice
Welcome to the CBS Office of Educational Scholarship and Practice
Following initiation of Remote Teaching necessitated by the COVID-19 Pandemic, the COESP has provided an abundance of resources to the Teaching and Learning community. We invite you to access and utilize these resources compiled within the COESP Remote Teaching Handbook, initiated by our Remote Teaching Pathway.
Welcome to the website for the COESP at the University of Guelph! We are a unique Office in Canada - one that focuses on Biology Higher Education; something we’re going to call “BioEd.”
The College of Biological Science at the University of Guelph is made up of the Departments of Integrative Biology, Molecular and Cellular Biology and Human Health and Nutritional Sciences. We take pride in our focus on Biology - and only Biology - and our Guelphiness, with its friendly, small town feel where everyone is welcomed, supported and included in a way that fosters excellence and innovation.
That innovation comes through in the formation of the COESP. We started talking about a biology-specific Office in 2013 and we got started in March 2016 to address the needs and challenges in biology higher education. The COESP officially began with the appointment of its first Faculty Director, Professor John Dawson.
Have a look at what is going on in the COESP here and let us know how we can support you!
