Event Description

Pillar: Transformative Learning

Attend this workshop to explore teaching and learning practices that support the development of personal and professional communication skills for degree success and success outside of the university. Participants will cycle between tables to engage with short presentations about teaching methods being used at UBC, such as listening, nonverbal communication, clarity & concision, confidence, respect, teamwork, feedback, and picking the right medium. Take away new ideas to implement in your own teaching context, expand your UBC network in teaching and learning, and gain new perspectives from your colleagues.

This workshop is presented by the Writing Across the Curriculum+ (WAC+) Program, a TLEF-funded collaboration between the Science Centre for Learning and Teaching (Skylight), the Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication, and the Department of Chemistry. The program supports the teaching and learning of written, oral, and other non-traditional forms of communication in the sciences.
