Keep Teaching Series

Keep Teaching Series

In mid-March 2020, UBC worked to retool our courses under the intense emergency circumstances of a global pandemic. Through sharing our collective expertise and experience, and the hard work of countless members of the UBC community, teaching and learning has continued — and in some cases even produced innovative new ways of learning, teaching and working. The Keep Teaching story series aims to share and pay tribute to the work and experiences of UBC faculty through this time.
