CTLT Institute

The CTLT hosts a variety of Institutes a year. The CTLT Winter Institute will be held December 14 – 17, 2020. The Winter Institute is a time for colleagues to come together during the mid-academic year to reflect on the impact of their teaching practices on student learning and experiences. The Winter Institute also provides an opportunity to network with colleagues, review the practical application of techniques and discuss practices that are successful in online learning environments. 

These sessions are not designed to be completed in a particular sequence or as a whole cohort. Please sign-up for sessions individually as desired. For more info visit https://institute.ctlt.ubc.ca
