RESPECT e-magazine: Immersive Learning Opportunity on EDI

Event Date & Time

  • May 10, 2022
    12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Event Description

This event is part of the 2022 Celebrate Learning Week.

In this poster session, we will showcase the RESPECT magazine as a venue to discuss equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) on campus. With support from the Equity Enhancement Fund, this UBC student-facing and student-run e-magazine publishes their understanding of EDI issues as multimodal presentations to enhance UBC’s Inclusive Action Plan (IAP).

RESPECT magazine is an Educational Leadership project that develops an open educational resource to inform teaching and learning at the university. It is an example of an immersive learning opportunity for students to project manage, act as part of the editorial team and share their perspectives with diverse stakeholders. It is experiential in nature, as a team of instructors and students learned to create this digital platform and dialogic space for EDI matters, with the hope to invite reflection in this area and generate ideas to inform the challenges that face all of us.

The session will discuss the project objectives, digital platform development, collaboration with students, Equity Enhancement Office, other stakeholders and expected outcomes.
