A studio is a resource for the production and expression of knowledge. It's a setting for creative and thoughtful work. It facilitates continuous learning, experimentation and discovery. 

The Studio for Teaching and Learning builds on Saint Mary’s tradition of bringing faculty and students together in a learning-centred environment. All members of our university community are learners, and we support life-long learning for our students, faculty, staff, and alumni. 

Teaching and research are complementary, and we take pride in our commitment and ability to integrate the two. We promote and celebrate teaching excellence, and we encourage the scholarship of teaching and learning. We also offer space and support for collaborative student learning, innovation and co-operation.

We are a community of scholars.
