Teaching, research and leadership are at the core of all we do at UBC. This Community of Practice (CoP) aims to facilitate the growth, success, and innovation in all our teaching and EL initiatives, and to provide a collaborative, supportive, and social environment to do so.

Striving to be an institution that leads, inspires and enables students through excellence in transformative teaching is our daily challenge, and better to tackle it enthusiastically together.  This CoP will be beneficial for, and we welcome, both new and experienced faculty/lecturers/sessional instructors. Teaching excellence is at the heart of it, and often where our EL inspirations come from.

The objectives of this CoP are to:

  • Bring faculty together to help create, innovate, focus (eg. find your focus/niche/strengths), share and collaborate on teaching/SoTL and EL initiatives
  • Identify needs and challenges of teaching and EL work and provide support; whether a new teaching or seasoned professor
  • Provide opportunities for learning the breadth and opportunities (including grants etc.) for teaching, EL work, and the leadership skills required and resources to help
  • Further the understanding of teaching excellence, EL, what it is, and its value
  • Sharing effective strategies to promote teaching excellence
  • Identify and work synergistically with related institutional units, CoPs and the Educational Leadership Network (ELNET)
