About TECHE

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 community blog: for the people, by the people.

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