Advancing the strategic plan: Shaping UBC’s Next Century and bringing the various elements of the plan to life is a priority for the UBC community. To support this goal, over the next two years the university will focus on six targeted priority areas within the strategic plan, including Strategy 11: Education Renewal. This strategy seeks to facilitate sustained program renewal and improvements in teaching effectiveness, with particular emphasis on expanding opportunities for graduate students to learn about teaching and broadening their learning as they prepare for their careers.
The Office of the Provost and VP Academic encourages faculty members, staff, postdocs and students to apply for the Advancing Education Renewal Call for Proposals.
Funded by UBC Vancouver’s Academic Excellence Funds, a total of $1.5 million over two years has been earmarked for UBC-V to support projects that advance one of three identified focus areas:
- Improvements in teaching effectiveness;
- Program redesign: Developing program-level outcomes; and
- Reimagining and strengthening graduate programs.
