The primary mission of the Learning Centre is to nurture and support an environment of excellence in learning and teaching. We do this by supporting the community of students, instructors, faculty, and staff within UBC’s Faculty of Land and Food Systems through training, design, problem solving, workshops, and supporting risk taking. The Learning Centre provides leadership, vision, and training on pedagogy, tools, classroom techniques, communication media, and learning technologies to allow individuals to take risks, innovate, and try new things in their teaching and research.
What We Do
The main goal of the LFS Learning Centre is to provide the faculty with support and technology, while also enabling faculty members to improve teaching and learning experiences, both inside and out of the classroom.
The LFS focuses mainly in the following categories:
- Hardware purchasing, advice, maintenance, and repair
- Web conferencing for Faculty and Grad Students
- Canvas support for Instructors and Teaching Staff
- Training and Workshops
