A shout-out to the home institution…

Via Libraries & Learning, a program here at UBC that gets it right:

As an expansion of the directed studies option offered by most departments, this program allows senior undergraduate students to initiate and coordinate small, collaborative, group learning experiences. The UBC proposal is modeled on an established student-directed seminar program at the University of California at Berkeley.

Student Directed Seminars create one avenue through which undergraduate students can become active participants in a UBC community of learners. Student coordinators have the unique opportunity of working closely with a member of faculty to explore a topic. Participants, as members of a self-directed group, also have a high degree of control over their own learning experience.

I see that one of the seminars is on Multimedia Practice in Education.

More: Student-led seminar offers fresh take on television news.
