Event Description

Please click “Register Now” to register for this event. This event will be hosted online on Zoom. 

This session was created specifically for contract faculty (sessionals and Lecturers). Please only register for this session if that description fits you.  

Students (and sometimes instructors) go through motivation fatigue by this time of year, so this session will present some research and techniques for supporting student motivation. Resources for student and faculty wellness, such as material on the UBC Student Services website, will be introduced. As always, we will discuss and share further resources with each other.

Sarika Bose (English) and Judy Chan (Land and Food Sciences) are the co-facilitators of this community of practice. As a result of the COVID crisis, we find ourselves adapting to new circumstances in our teaching lives. We hope that the offerings we have listed below will allow us, the Contract Faculty community, to work towards practical teaching solutions and best practices. Please note that some of the sessions might be adapted as the academic year progresses.


  • Judy Chan, Faculty Associate/ Faculty Liaison, Land and Food Systems, CTLT
  • Sarika Bose, Chair of Contract Faculty Committee of Faculty Association, Sessional Lecturer in Department of English

Please ensure you have your own quiet space, a computer with a webcam and headphones or earbuds.
