CTLT Institute

The CTLT Institute is hosted three times a year by UBC’s Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT).  The Spring, Summer & Winter Institutes feature interactive workshops where participants have an opportunity to network, gain practical ideas and share best practices with their fellow colleagues and members of the UBC Community.  Both Institutes are open to UBC faculty, staff, post-docs, graduate and undergraduate students and are traditionally held in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre (IKBLC). For more information on the CTLT Institute please click here.
