Please share this with your staff and faculty
UBC Human Resources and the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT) are hosting a five-month pilot of lynda.com resources at UBC. This service is available to all UBC employees with a staff or faculty appointment, between Nov. 1, 2013, and March 31, 2014, at no additional charge to UBC employees.
Learn more and register at http://lynda.ubc.ca/.
We encourage all staff at UBC to consider incorporating these flexible learning resources as part of their professional development, to complement in-person learning opportunities.
We also ask that you share this information with the faculty and staff in your unit. These resources will be particularly useful to faculty who want to incorporate technology into the classroom, refresh or learn new skills, transform their course, or prepare a proposal for a future Flexible Learning Call for Proposals. The expanded access for staff supports the availability of accessible, timely, work-related learning opportunities to enhance performance and career development.
Place and Promise outlines UBC’s commitment to the creation of exceptional environments that support student learning. Lynda.com‘s resources can help faculty and staff work towards achieving this goal.
