The TLX is also a great space when looking for a change in scenery and a quiet place to work.

In support of Memorial's Teaching and Learning Framework (TLF) 2023, we are here to work with instructors and academic units to help strengthen the student experience. Use our TLF Toolkit to explore strategies for accessibility, student engagement and student success, or apply for project funding through the Teaching Innovations and Learning Engagement fund.
