Join UBC students and faculty to discuss what secondary students need to know to be successful in the post-secondary environment. By making connections between inquiry-based learning in the K-12 context and information literacy in the post-secondary environment, attendees will explore opportunities for educators to support student transition between K-12 and higher education.
The full program will take place over two days – Friday, October 4 and Saturday, October 5. Attendees are invited to join for one or both days.
Day 1: Friday, October 4 (8:30-3:30)
A panel of undergraduate students and UBC teaching faculty will highlight skills and strategies for success at the post-secondary level. K-12 educators will be invited to share the strengths they see in elementary and secondary students. UBC Faculty, students, and attendees will collaboratively engage in interactive learning activities that will enhance our collective understandings of the competencies and dispositions required to support inquiry learning at the undergraduate level. Lunch and light refreshments provided.
Day 2: Saturday, October 5 (8:30-3:30)
Participants will put ideas into action in the form of learning design hackathon. We will collaboratively design lessons, activities, and curriculum that will strengthen the inquiry and research skills secondary students need to succeed in the post-secondary context. Lessons will be made openly available through TeachBC. Lunch and light refreshments provided.
Both days are free to attend. Limited funds are available for classroom teacher release on Friday, October 4. Honoraria will be provided to hackathon attendees on Saturday, October 5.
Registration for both days is limited. RSVP early to reserve your spot!
