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.
Distance education gives you the opportunity to take university credit courses without setting foot on campus.
The Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology supports flexible learning through both online and print-based materials. See a list of all courses.
At the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT), we develop and deliver credit courses and professional programs in collaboration with the Faculties and academic departments on campus.
Perhaps the greatest appeal of distance education for learners and instructors is the flexibility it offers.
The Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology supports the development of courses and programs that use distance and blended delivery modes.
