Educational Technology Support offers a variety of training and development programs focused on technology-enhanced teaching and learning, in order to advance our goal of encouraging instructors’ ability to deliver quality instruction in classroom, blended, and distance modalities.
Through its services, including professional development offerings, ETS aims to foster richer learning experiences and to support scholarship, research and community engagement within and beyond the Faculty of Education.
Our programs and workshops help faculty meet the Standards for Educators developed by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). These standards promote student engagement and creativity by enriching both learning and professional practice.
ETS offers various on-demand options for training and support. If you’d like 1-on-1 support, book an appointment with one of our Tech Rovers by emailing us at email@example.com. If you would like to have our team facilitate a workshop for your department/team/unit – we’re happy to help! Simply submit a workshop request.
Every Tuesday from 12:00 – 1:00 we are offering online support.

Learning Design To-Go
Every Thursday from 12:00 – 1:00, Sharon and Stoo, the ETS Instructional Designers, will be visiting instructors in Scarfe and Ponderosa to engage in conversations about designing your virtual and physical learning spaces.
Learning Technology Workshops
We are currently revisiting our workshop offerings for 2018 and will be posting details soon. We currently support course development processes, learning technologies integration and online teaching practices, so if you would like specific workshops in any of these areas, feel free to contact us.
ETS offers weekly drop-in sessions (no registration required) for learning technology help. The purpose of these sessions are to allow Faculty and Staff to drop-in to have their questions answered and receive hands-on support. Drop in sessions are every Tuesday from 12:00-1:00 in Neville Scarfe Room 1008.
We understand that sometimes the busy schedules of faculty and staff may not be able to accommodate attending a 60 or 90 minute workshop at a given day or time. Thankfully, UBC has some excellent resources that allow you to learn on your own time and at your own pace. Please see our Self-Paced Learning page for an up-to-date list of learning resources available to faculty & staff at UBC.
