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 CoP: Teaching and Resources on Campus

October 20, 2021 | 11:00 am – 12:00 pm | Zoom

Welcome to UBC, new contract faculty! Welcome back to campus, returning contract faculty! Teaching on a contract is a challenging task as changes in our contracts, courses, and department policies remain a constant. We will exchange common challenges we face and explore possible interventions such as techniques for adapting to online teaching. We will share resources available to you on campus. Together, we will come up with a collective list of tips and resources for us all to share.
