11th Annual Learning Conference
University of British Columbia’s Okanagan Campus
The conference theme “Making an Impact: Transforming the Student Experience” invites faculty to explore questions such as:
- How can research inform my teaching and enhance the student learning experience?
- How do students learn best?
- What does the research say about approaches to teaching and learning that are most effective?
- Which innovations are working well?
The conference will explore the areas of experiential learning, scholarship of teaching and learning, flexible learning, metacognition, technology use in the classroom, internationalizing curriculum, interdisciplinary learning experiences, assessment in higher education or any general teaching and learning innovation.
The conference will open with a keynote by Dr. Alec Couros, Associate Professor of Information and Communication Technologies at the University of Regina. Alec is an scholar and advocate of openness in distributed learning environments. He has facilitated hundreds of workshops and presentations, nationally and internationally.
