Setting the course for advancement and innovation in teaching
In a society founded on the development of knowledge, the ability of our communities to prosper and to realize their full potential depends largely on the level of education of our citizens and their ability to generate new ideas. Training skilled and responsible people who are promoters of change is the core mission of the Faculty of Agriculture and Food Sciences at Université Laval.
In 2011, Université Laval established a unique development tool — the Educational Leadership Chairs — to meet these expectations and reinforce its potential for pedagogical innovation. The program for the advancement of innovation, research, and education (Programme pour l’avancement de l’innovation, de la recherche et de l’enseignement - PAIRE) falls within this framework. All academic fields covered by the institution can be the subject of an educational leadership chair.
