Higher education, both at UBC and more broadly, has changed dramatically over the past one hundred years. These changes have influenced everything from who pursues higher education to how faculty teach and how students learn. To celebrate one hundred years of teaching and learning at UBC and to build on UBC’s Place and Promise commitment of creating an exceptional learning environment, this event brings together academic decision makers along with key faculty, alumni and students, to review the major changes that have occurred in the past one hundred years, discuss breakthroughs and innovations poised to have significant influences on the future, and to chart the near-term future of teaching and learning at UBC. CTLT will then work with academic units interested in pioneering the course, thus allowing UBC to define the future rather than respond to it.
