The UBC Educational Leadership Network is a community of Assistant Professors of Teaching, Associate Professors of Teaching, and Professors of Teaching at the University of British Columbia committed to the

  • celebration of educational leadership, innovation and excellence in teaching and learning
  • sharing of information, resources, expertise, and ideas within the university community and beyond
  • support and promotion of the Educational Leadership stream

Message from Chair:

This year, ELNet is working in the theme of “gentle advocacy” – continuing to support EL faculty members, listening to their concerns, and sharing those concerns with others at UBC (including senior administration). We’re not a formal advocacy group, but we’re happy to help spread the word around both campuses!
