communities of practicE
The UBC Okanagan, Centre for Teaching and Learning, operates a number of Communities of Practice from September to March. All faculty are welcome to join. Please contact the appropriate person if you are interested in joining or attending.
CofP Info Sessions:
All new-to-UBC students are paired to an upper-year student in the same academic program known as their Peer Mentor. Peer Mentors are UBC Okanagan campus experts and current successful students. Thus, they are eager to answer questions, guide students in navigating different campus resources, and encourage them to participate in engagement opportunities.
As a faculty member, we encourage you to refer a new student to their Peer Mentor should they: struggle understanding academic expectations, express need for help either personally, socially, or academically, demonstrate or share difficulties adjusting to university, or indicate the wish to get involved outside the classroom.
Faculty members are invited to contact their faculty Peer Mentors should they need support on events, initiatives, promotion and dissemination of information, or to build peer-to-peer feedback on annual projects or class milestones for students.
