ELNET’s 2nd Annual Marketplace Event:

“Love it or Lose it” ~ Ideas to keep in your teaching practice and ones to let go

May 17, 2021, 4:00 – 5:30 pm

This past year has launched UBC faculty into emergency remote instruction. This presented both challenges and opportunities to test technologies and approaches for online and interactive learning. All faculty members have tried many new methods to enhance teaching during our online academic year, and with this is mind, the Celebrate Learning Week event is a great opportunity to reflect on and share lessons learned. As part of the learning celebration, we have invited a number of instructors to share teaching practices that they “love” and will build on, and those they wish to reshape, or maybe even “lose.” While getting ideas from others, and reflecting on your own teaching practices, this session will prepare us to shape our future as we make plans to develop our teaching and educational leadership in light of our collective experiences.

The event will begin with an introduction from the ELNET team, followed by short 3-5 min. presentations from contributors of their “love it lose it” practice. Continuing with a “marketplace” approach, participants will then be able to “shop around” for fresh teaching ideas with further discussion amongst presenters in either a round table or a break out room format. The discussion will allow participants to specifically apply the ideas to their teaching scenarios.
