We respectfully acknowledge that our work at UBC takes place on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Musqueam people (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm).

Welcome! This blog is part of a Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund project called ‘The Learning Exchange as a Hub of Experiential Learning.’ This project explores what makes for effective community-engaged learning (CEL) partnerships between UBC and its local community with particular emphasis on Vancouver’s downtown eastside.


After developing a report in the first part of 2018 based on community dialogues, we have been  developing ‘tools’ to help instructors and community partners. These tools (above) include Community Based Experiential Learning resources for (Faculty, Staff and Students), research, podcasts, and a blog stories about effective partnership.
