The groundbreaking building

The Taylor Institute is the first building in Canada dedicated solely to improving postsecondary teaching and learning. It was designed with three guiding principles: flexibility, transparency and collaboration. It features three dynamic learning spaces that allow instructors to experiment. On the south side of the atrium, the forum features retractable seating that allows it to convert from a flat-floor learning space to a 340-seat public lecture space.
