The Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology supports Faculties that offer courses and programs to students who prefer alternative (technology-enabled) learning modes, seek scheduling flexibility and/or are unable to come to campus. These course offerings bridge physical and administrative distances, enabling students to balance their educational, professional and personal lives. Our instructional design, project management and distance education expertise strengthens UBC’s ability to leverage scarce resources to the benefit of on-campus and off-campus learners. Through these efforts, CTLT and its partners help to extend UBC’s campus throughout the province and world, positioning the University as a leader in innovative educational practice in the global community. All courses supported by CTLT carry full credit toward degree programs.
Be sure to visit the courses page to learn about the more than 120 distance education courses supported by CTLT. Also, read our course and student profiles to see what students have to say about their distance education experience.
