Join us for our first educational leadership event of the 2015-2016 academic year, a panel led discussion, titled “Taking your teaching beyond your classroom: Teaching practice and educational leadership.” This event will take place on Monday, November 30th from 2:30-4:00 pm in the Dodson Room in the IKBLC.
Come and learn more about how UBC faculty work to make an impact beyond their own classrooms by incorporating technology into their courses, engaging students in experiential learning opportunities, and working to help international students transition successfully to UBC.
Catherine Rawn, Christina Hendricks, Sunaina Assanand, Allen Sens, and Joanne Fox will present diverse examples of student-centered educational leadership initiatives.
What does Educational Leadership mean? What about Teaching Excellence? Innovation in Teaching? These terms are increasingly part of the teaching landscape at UBC, but what do they mean in the context of our careers? Come and hear Dr. Simon Bates, Professor of Teaching, Senior Advisor on Teaching and Learning, and Academic Director of CTLT speak about what these key terms can entail. (Hint: They’re much broader than you might think!) This session will help you develop ideas about how to engage in educational leadership, teaching excellence, and innovation, as well as how to represent these actions on your annual reports, promotions files, and award applications.
Join us on Wednesday 27 March 2013, 3-4:30pm, Dodson Room at the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre.
Instructor track faculty, research track faculty, heads and directors, and other interested parties are welcome to join us.
