Start with research about how students learn. Add rapidly advancing technologies. Multiply by a desire to improve the student experience, widen access and strengthen institutional sustainability. The result?
Flexible Learning at UBC
It’s a comprehensive strategy that’s changing how, when and where UBC students learn. Flexible learning boosts reasoning and retention, and lets students customize their experience to meet long-term educational and professional goals.
Introducing the Six Pillars of Flexible Learning
These priority areas are the foundation of our strategy:
Today’s students expect education to be accessible, immersive, collaborative, personalized, and online-enriched.
With more options for applied graduate degrees, career certification and personal study, lifelong learners will benefit from more focused, relevant and accessible education.
In an increasingly networked learning environment, UBC will add value via experiential learning opportunities and campus improvements that foster and enhance academic, professional and social connections.
Students will increasingly be able to customize their learning experience to meet short- and long-term educational goals.
Building on existing preparatory programs, new year-round educational programs will showcase the UBC experience to engage high-performing international and high school students.
To expand and enhance academic programs and capabilities, UBC will collaborate with peer institutions at home and around the globe.
