What I Wish Educators Knew Before Class Started: Re-examining Academic Experiences Through Student-led Seminars

Event Date & Time

  • May 9, 2022
    10:00 am - 11:30 am

Event Description

This event is part of theĀ 2022 Celebrate Learning Week.

Join us for student-led and student-focused discussion exploring classroom culture, community building, learning beyond the classroom and improving student experiences with a panel of Student Directed Seminars Coordinators who served as both students and educators during the pandemic. Each student panelist developed a 3-credit course on a topic not currently offered at UBC, with the support of a Faculty Sponsor, a Student Engagement Advisor and Learning Designers from CTLT and then facilitated the course with up-to fifteen peers. As students balanced the role of educators and students, they learned a lot, and wish to share some of their reflections with the broader teaching community at UBC with the hopes of improving student learning experiences across the university.
