Teaching in a Blended Learning Environment (T-BLE) is a short, immersive course aimed at instructors who are considering moving to a blended environment. The course runs for six weeks and is delivered in a blended format—a combination of online and face-to-face sessions.
These courses are geared toward instructors who have a course they would like to design or re-design, regardless of mode: face-to-face, online or blended.
In these workshops, faculty members 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, and online resources complement 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.
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.
