Courses + workshops
UBC’s Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT) offers free courses and workshops for TAs who are interested in learning more about teaching practices and learning technology.
CTLT offers three-day Graduate Student ISWs designed for graduate students interested in developing and enhancing their instructional skills. Participants will have a chance to sharpen existing skills and to experiment with new approaches to teaching.
These courses are geared toward instructors and graduate students who have a course they would like to design or re-design, regardless of mode: face-to-face, online or blended.
In these workshops, instructors and TAs who have implemented a new approach in their teaching practice share their experiences and discuss how it has impacted their teaching. Tipping Points are also available as webcasts, with online resources complementing the discussion.
The CTLT Institutes give the UBC teaching community an opportunity to share practices and research around teaching, learning, and educational technologies. The Summer Institute includes a daylong teaching orientation for new instructors and TAs.
The Flipped Lab is a faculty-led network of instructors and staff who are engaged in or curious about the pedagogy and practical aspects of teaching in a 'flipped classroom' environment.
