UBC Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund

Since coming to UBC in 2004, I was very fortunate to participate in many projects aimed at improving educational experiences of our students. These projects would not have been possible if not for the UBC Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund – TLEF. This fund’s goal is to support innovation in teaching and learning at UBC and encourage faculty members to try new things and continue working on improving students’ experiences. Since I am always interested in exploring how technology can improve student learning, this is a fantastic opportunity for me and my graduate students to try new things. It is also an opportunity to collaborate with other faculty members across campus.

Our latest project that was funded by TLEF focused on the use of technology to improve the preparation of science and mathematics teachers at UBC. We produced short videos of science experiments that Teacher-Candidates can perform during their practicum or during our now famous UBC Facutly of Education Family Math and Science Day. To learn more about our project, please visit this project report site and of course our YouTube channel of science experiments: Science & Math Education Videos for All.
