Each year, a portion of UBC-V student tuition is set aside to form the Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (TLEF).  The TLEF is a unique opportunity for faculty and students to apply for funding to carry out projects seeking to improve the student learning experience at UBC-V.  Come to this event to see poster presentations from 40 TLEF project teams, to learn more about how their TLEF projects are impacting the student experience across campus. 

For anyone thinking of applying to the TLEF, this event will also provide helpful insight into the types of initiatives the TLEF supports across both Large and Small TLEF projects.
