Annual Science Education Open House

An annual spring showcase of teaching and learning projects across UBC Science with talks, a poster session, and workshops.

2020 Open House

This year's Open House was scheduled for the end of April, but it was postponed due to COVID-19. We were pleased to transform our traditional event into a two-part online workshop, offered in July 2020; details on these workshops are below.

Upcoming workshop

Academic Integrity and Inclusive Practices in Online Science Courses - July 30, 2020, 1:00pm-2:30pm

Within this session, we will explore academic integrity in online courses and provide examples of how this issue has been approached by Science faculty. We will also discuss how we can foster inclusion and community within our fall courses.
