Pronounced “teach,” our name comes from Macquarie University’s motto ‘And Gladly Teche’, a quote from Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.

TECHE is Macquarie University’s Learning and Teaching blog:  learning and teaching news for Macquarie people, by Macquarie people.

This is a blog run for and by Macquarie’s learning and teaching community. It contains news, resources, notices, stories, and general opinion pieces of interest on our learning and teaching.
