The Maple League leads conversations on quality undergraduate education in Canada.

MAPLE LEAGUE SIGNATURE INITIATIVES

Maple League Shared Courses

Through a Memorandum of Understanding, Faculty from any school can share any Fall/Winter course across the Maple League. Through the Shared Courses students expand can their horizons, meet new colleagues, and connect with new mentors. Tuition is payed to their home institution, in the same way it is for all their courses, and credits and grades are automatically transferred between registrars' offices.

The Virtual Maple League Teaching and Learning Centre (V_MLTLC)

The V_MLTLC creates programming & professional development opportunities for faculty across the Maple League and beyond.

  • The Better Together series creates a space for faculty and students to imagine a new future for university education. For information about the current season of Better Together, please click here.

  • Our Maple League Hosts series brings in luminary thinkers from outside the Maple League to invigorate and inspire our imaginations.

  • The Maple League Book Club brings students, staff, and faculty into the same (virtual) room each term to read and discuss, a book that challenges our understanding of post-secondary education. 

  • The Award-Winning Educators series highlights Maple League faculty whose dedication and passion have brought them well-deserved accolades and invites them to share some of their secret sauce.

  • The Maple League Micro-Certificate in Teaching and Learning is a 10-month program that brings together up to 20 faculty from across the Maple League to engage in critical self-reflection and co-mentorship—all with the goal of refining their skills and tools for making great classrooms.

3M Mentorship Network and Resources for Faculty and Students

The 3M Mentorship Network mobilizes faculty, students, and staff to support the creation and submission of 3M Applications for both Faculty and Students.

 

Faculty create and refine their dossiers with the help of a 13-part video series and one-on-one mentorship from peers across the Maple League.

 

Students are supported by faculty champions on each campus, and by online events throughout the Fall and Winter terms which give them support and accountability in preparing their applications.

 

This program showcases the extraordinary excellence of the Maple League. We punch far above our weight, with Two Maple League faculty invited to the 3M Fellowship in 2021 and seven Maple League Students invited to the 3M Fellowship in the past two years!

Online Learning and Technology Consultants (OLTC)

The global pandemic encouraged us to re-think traditional modes of design and delivery, and in doing so advanced our thinking about student expertise in productive ways. In June 2020, Bishop’s University hired university students as Online Learning and Technology Consultants (OLTCs) from all academic disciplines to help support faculty members prepare for Fall 2020. The program provided students with work-integrated learning (WIL) experiences and future-facing skill development (digital literacy, design thinking, creative problem solving, emotional and social intelligence), while working directly with faculty to enhance their courses. 

 

After the success of the OLTC pilot program at Bishop’s University, the Maple League expanded the program across the four associated universities (Acadia, Bishop’s, Mount Allison, St. Francis Xavier) during the 2021-22 academic year, with both a curricular and co-curricular learning experience available to students funded through the Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER), Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning (CEWIL) Canada, and Canada Summer Jobs.
