Contract Faculty Community of Practice (CFCoP)

As Contract (Sessional) Faculty members constantly strive towards excellence in their teaching, many individuals are looking for opportunities to discuss practical instructional techniques and broader pedagogical strategies with their colleagues. By providing a collegial space in which to meet other Contract Faculty across campus, this Community of Practice aims to offer such an opportunity. Our sessions may vary in format as we develop our community. The three basic formats envisioned include:

  1. A presentation by an expert on a particular topic, followed by discussion
  2. A workshop on a particular skill
  3. A group discussion of an article on pedagogy to which the group will have a link before the session

For the 2021 term, all sessions will be held online.

If you have any questions about this Community of Practice and/or ideas for future events, please contact Dr. Sarika Bose, Chair of Contract Faculty Committee of Faculty Association.

Contract Faculty Colloquium

May 4, 2022 | 10:30 am – 3:00 pm | Hybrid (In-person: IKBLC, CTLT, Seminar Room 2.22 | Online: Zoom)

The Contract Faculty Colloquium has been convened for Contract Faculty at UBC-V and UBC-O for several years, and aims to bring together Contract Faculty from across campuses to showcase and share their intellectual work with other colleagues. This year’s 7th Annual Colloquium will feature papers by Contract Faculty colleagues from a range of disciplines, including Mathematics, Chinese history, and Shakespeare studies. We will examine various pedagogical processes and share pedagogical strategies throughout the day-long event, which will be presented in hybrid form, so that we can include as many colleagues as we can from both campuses. The Colloquium is co-sponsored by CTLT and the UBC Faculty Association, and is organized jointly by the Contract Faculty Committee and CTLT staff.
