In 2013, the Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (formerly the Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities) allocated a Productivity and Innovation Fund grant to a team of eight Ontario universities: University of Windsor, Western University, McMaster University, University of Waterloo, University of Guelph, Ryerson University, Wilfrid Laurier University, and Brock University. Queen’s University also participated in this initial survey design and piloting. Having received a SSHRC Insight Development Grant in 2016, the team, with the addition of the University of Calgary, continues to collaboratively explore ways of assessing and enhancing teaching culture of higher education.
