Message from the Director

As I finish my first year as Academic Director of the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology, I am happy to have the opportunity to reflect back on our work during the past academic year in preparing our 2018/19 annual report. We have chosen to organize this report according to the strategies within the Transformative Learning section of the UBC strategic plan, Shaping UBC’s Next Century, as well as the three themes in that plan: inclusion, collaboration and innovation. This report highlights just a few of the many activities we have undertaken and projects we have supported that relate to these strategies and themes. Many of the stories collected here showcase our collaborations with faculty, staff and students across the university community, such as our work supporting departments and programs to renew their curricula around program learning outcomes. We facilitate innovation through supporting Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund projects and the learning analytics hackathons, where students work with real learning data to create innovative applications that support learning. And we promote inclusive teaching through our work with projects such as the newly launched Inclusive Teaching @ UBC website and IN/Relation, which supports international students in learning about their roles as guests on unceded Musqueam territory.

For the coming year, we are thrilled to welcome a new Deputy Academic Director as of July 2019, Dr. Jaclyn Stewart. We also look forward to supporting the UBC Indigenous Strategic Plan, which details the university’s response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, as well as the upcoming Inclusion Action Plan and other strategic priorities. Please get in touch if you’d like to learn more about what we do and how you can be involved!
