In-Person Graduate Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) August 6, 13 & 20, 2022 waitlist sign up opens June 24!



Please forward the following information to your graduate students:

Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT) will be offering an In-Person Graduate Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) on August 6, 13 & 20, 2022.

The Grad ISW is a 24-hour, fully participatory, and peer-based professional development workshop for graduate students that is beneficial to both new and experienced instructors.

Please note: you must attend all face-to-face sessions and complete all independent work for the complete duration of the workshop, (i.e. the entire 24-hour workshop).

To register for the waitlist for August 6, 13 & 20, 2022 sign up here:


Waitlist opens on June 24 and will close on August 3, 2022 at 4:30 pm. By clicking this link, you are signing up for the WAITLIST only and this DOES NOT register you for the workshop. Graduate ISWs at UBC are in high demand. To create an equitable registration process all graduate students who register for an ISW will first be enrolled on a waitlist, from which participants are randomly selected. If a participant has registered for more than one ISW waitlist, their name will appear more frequently when generating the participant list, giving them a higher chance of being selected for an ISW. If you are accepted into the workshop, you will be contacted by our office to confirm your registration. For more information and a list of all upcoming sessions visit:

EDCP 508D (951): Cross-Cultural Research in an Era of Climate Change and Global Inequities

July 25–Aug. 8, 2022

Time: M–F, 11:30 am–3:30 pm

EDCP 508D abstract


This research methodology course explores opportunities and challenges of conducting research across different worldviews, knowledge systems, languages and geographies. The focus of this course is to guide students as visionaries and architects of change in the design of cross-cultural research in this era of climate change, global socioeconomic inequities and pandemics. Students will critically reflect on how their own cultural worldviews, lived experiences, sense of place and life narratives influence the shaping of their research projects as they work to articulate research method(ologie)s and research projects that promote a more just, compassionate and ecologically sustainable world.
