When policy is put into practice in the classroom

1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Neville Scarfe Building, room 200

The Equity and Inclusion Office and the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology invite the UBC teaching and learning community to explore the complexity of policy in the classroom. In teaching and learning settings, a heated or puzzling moment can arise from grey areas concerning institutional policies, despite their goal of making classroom spaces hospitable and productive for all. To respond to these situations effectively, it is essential for us to have a multidimensional understanding of these policies and the complexity of the classroom spaces.

Planning a summer course? Looking for a space to share ideas, resources and approaches you will take

9:30 am - 11:00 am
Irving K Barber Learning Centre, Seminar (Room 2.22 A/B)

As an instructor you make difficult decisions about what readings and resources to include in your course syllabus. What informs your decisions are often the result of circumstances that are out of your control such as gaps in information, inaccurate prior knowledge and isolated ideas and beliefs among your students. This is a reality for many instructors who teach courses on Indigenous topics.
Please join us for a collaborative session that will provide a space for faculty to share ideas, readings and approaches they are thinking about bringing into their course design this summer.  In this session we will share ways to incorporate innovative resources such as the unceded exhibit project materials and Xwi7xwa Library digital resources to support the objectives of your course.
