Orientation to Learning Technologies


Faculty members learning about educational technologies at the orientation.

Register now for the upcoming May 2018 Orientation.

At the beginning of each term, the Educational Technology Support offers an Orientation to Learning Technologies. This 2-hour session is suitable for faculty members who are looking to use UBC’s learning platform for the first time, needing to record a lecture and putting it online or wanting to find out how teaching an online-only class could work for a busy schedule. This session is highly recommended by the Dean’s office.

The goal of the Orientation is to:

  1. Introduce new instructors to the context of teaching with learning technologies within the Faculty of Education
  2. Provide an opportunity to connect with like-minded peers and share best practices
  3. Provide relevant information on teaching strategies, educational technologies and institutional policies through activities and presentations

The Orientation will cover a variety of topics including:

  1. How to incorporate flexible learning in your courses through different models of teaching and learning strategies.
  2. The available teaching tools within the Faculty of Education and UBC.
  3. An introduction to UBC’s official Learning Management System.
  4. Academic integrity, copyright and introduction to the Library Online Course Reserves (LOCR).
  5. Contact information for in-Faculty technology support.

This is an informational orientation session containing no dedicated hands-on time. Additional in-depth and hands-on workshops, focusing on specific learning technologies, will be offered throughout the year. If you have specific questions regarding learning technologies, please contact us by email at ets.educ@ubc.ca or by phone at 604-822-6333.
