Teaching and Learning

  • Train highly qualified critical thinkers who are prepared to tackle leadership roles in our bioeconomy 
  • Enhance student experience through engagement with our partners and communities 
  • Create inspired, experiential and interdisciplinary learning opportunities to meet the needs of our diverse learners 
  • Continuously adapt our curriculum to address emerging issues and future opportunities 


A recent survey of AgBio students and employers identified gaps between some key skills and knowledge developed in academic programs, and preparedness to apply these to real-world job market situations. 

The RBC Learn to Work, Work to Learn program was established to help students develop necessary skills to enter the workforce and enhance their career opportunities. Through interactive workshops, events and skills-focused learning built around a summer work experience, this program gives students a variety of opportunities to network and gain insight from industry employers.
