    Coming Event: ELNET’s 2nd Annual Marketplace Event: “Love it or Lose it” ~ Ideas to keep in your teaching practice and ones to let go 

    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.

    M.C.s Sally Willis-Stewart, Associate Professor of Teaching, School of Health and Exercise Sciences, UBC) and Silvia Bartolic, Associate Professor of Teaching, Sociology, UBCV

    Organizers: Nina Hewitt, Assistant Professor of Teaching, Geography, UBCV and Anita Chaudhuri, Assistant Professor of Teaching, Department of English and Cultural Studies, UBCO

    Registration is via CTLT and CTL’s Celebrate Learning Week

    In Discussion with Dr. Christina Hendricks and Dr. Peter Newbury 

    July 2020

    The workshop with Dr. Christina Hendricks, CTLT and Dr. Peter Newbury, CTL will focus on Educational Leadership (EL). The discussion will explore how the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) has been impacted by COVID-19 and experienced remarkable shifts, for instance, modified pedagogical approaches, alternate delivery formats and use of technology, to name a few. Wellbeing in online environments is a critical area and useful resources for support will be shared. As the UBC community continues to work hard, it is important to recognize silver linings and the facilitators will engage participants with emerging opportunities that support SoTL, in particular the EL mapping tool. Finally, this will be a model session for effective synchronous learning.

    Sharing Ideas, Tips, and Strategies for Preparing EL CVs and Dossiers 

    Wednesday May 30, 10-11:30, Chilcotin Room 256 at IKBLC, Vancouver Campus.

    Over the last couple of months we have drafted a collection of strategies and ideas that various EL faculty have used when creating their CVs and Dossiers, including their dossier Tables of Contents. The purpose of this document is two-fold: to share wisdom and ideas among EL faculty members, and to offer to the Senior Appointments Committee some feedback as they work on revising the SAC guide this summer. This session will begin with small-group discussions to share further strategies for preparing EL CVs and Dossiers (feel free to bring your own examples to get feedback), using the document as a starting point. Then, Simon Bates will offer an overview of the SAC guide context, to frame the next small-group discussion: feedback on the document (clarifications, what’s missing), as well as any other feedback/questions we can pass on to SAC about EL CVs and dossiers.

    Please RSVP by emailing Catherine Rawn, cdrawn@psych.ubc.ca, who will then send you the current draft of the document if you would like to review it ahead of time. After receiving feedback during the session, the updated document will be made available to everyone on this list, along with a last call for feedback/questions for SAC.

    We’re looking into video recording the session, but note that the discussion format may not translate well to video format.

    The audio recording of this session can be accessed through the following Youtube link: https://youtu.be/0p0mxsAIbl8
