Two VCC events (Research Day, and the Teaching & Learning Symposium) are combined into a single event this year.

About this Event

THEME: Change Is the Only Constant: Sharing Experiences of Teaching, Learning, and Research in Times of Disruption

--> Call For Proposals is open now <-- (deadline Jan 8, 2021)

The event will take place February 25 & 26, 2021 (over two days, part-time each day, schedule TBA in early Feb)

This is a public event open to those who are both internal and external to Vancouver Community College.

DETAILS: In February 2021, VCC will hold its first combined Teaching & Learning Symposium and Research Day event. We are currently looking for people to present or lead workshops using one or more of the ideas below as a focus. Possible formats for presentations or workshops could include lightning talks, panel discussions, or activity-based interactive sessions. The symposium will be delivered completely online.

For more details about the event, and to submit your proposal, please go to:

https://ctlr.vcc.ca/teaching--learning/teaching-learning-and-research-symposium/

The deadline for proposal submission is January 8, 2021.

IDEAS TO CONSIDER: Given the shift to online delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • How are assessment practices changing?
  • What novel and inventive ways are being developed to engage students through both asynchronous and synchronous delivery?
  • How will work-based training, experiential learning, and student-led research change?
  • How will inclusive spaces be maintained, in teaching and learning, and in research?
  • How do we approach resilience and wellness during this time? How do we help students and community members with their resilience and wellness?
  • What does community building look like in virtual spaces?
  • How are we engaging in research and supporting scholarship in virtually connected environments?
