CTL Support for Research

The Centre for Teaching and Learning supports the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. Faculty are encouraged to carry out research in the area of teaching and learning. What techniques work and why? The ultimate goal is to enhance learning, so why not research teaching methods that can achieve that?

Enriching the teaching and learning experience is one of the highest priorities in the whole UBC system. The opportunity to pursue research and scholarship in teaching and learning methodology is recognized across disciplines for diverse students audiences at all levels. The small size of UBC's Okanagan campus encourages this learner-centered focus encouraging faculty and students’ involvement in discovery and inquiry valuing both the scholarship and practical impact of research.

Currently the Centre operates a Scholarship of Teaching & Learning Community of Practice and hosts a website devoted to researchers sharing their interests, posting ways to publish, and archiving past research week SoTL activities.

We also provide two ways that faculty can disseminate their research through our Annual Learning Conference (May) as well as Research Week presentations (March).
