Please join us for Internationalization Learning Day 2017!
We welcome all UBC faculty, staff, and graduate students to discover how UBC is creating and supporting exceptional, globally-relevant learning experiences, across disciplines. This event will feature thought-provoking sessions that examine how diverse learning experiences benefit our students and dynamically inform our academic and support services in an ongoing, interactive process.
Sessions will include:
9:00 am - 11:00 am: Internationalizing the curriculum panel show case
- Featuring Dr. David Jefferess and Dr. Ruth-Ann Lee
11:15 am - 12:15 pm: Keynote Address - Internationalizing the Curriculum, Teaching, and Learning
- Featuring Dr. William Pinar, Professor and Canada Research Chair in Curriculum and Pedagogy, Faculty of Education, UBC. Dr. Pinar will provide three tentative interrelated commentaries on this educational question, one referencing elements of political thought in Canada, a second drawn from the controversies surrounding cosmopolitanism as an educational ideal, and a third that follows from his own SSHRCC-sponsored efforts to understand his specialization (curriculum studies) in Brazil, China, India, Mexico, and South Africa. Drawing from these three, he will conclude with a reflection on the ever-shifting specificity of the question “why internationalization.”
