Call for Contributions

Promoting Inclusivity and Accessibility

UBC is hosting the 13th Annual Celebrate Learning Week online and in-person from May 9 – 13, 2022. The Provost and Vice-President Academic from UBCV and UBCO will again collaboratively present this week-long initiative that showcases teaching and learning at UBC through open lectures, poster sessions, workshops and more.

UBC faculty, staff and students are encouraged to participate in Celebrate Learning Week by coordinating and/or attending events.

We invite contributions that demonstrate accessible and effective learning spaces for all students; equity, diversity and inclusion; student experiences; open educational resources and wellbeing. Celebrate Learning Week serves as a forum for members of the teaching and learning community to collaborate, network and engage in knowledge exchange.

Session Format Suggestions (CLW sessions can be held online or in-person):

  • Interactive Workshop (50-120 minutes) – offer CLW attendees the opportunity to explore a topic in depth with their peers and to translate their learning into their respective teaching contexts.
  • Panel Presentation and Discussion (50-120 minutes) – provide a forum of public exchange of ideas, giving experts and CLW attendees the opportunity to discuss a particular topic collaboratively.
  • Virtual Poster Session – host an interactive poster session where CLW attendees can move from poster to poster, chatting with presenters, exchanging ideas and suggestions.
  • Other – host an informal chat or discussion.

Accessibility: CLW sessions strive to be accessible and inclusive. This includes course materials, content delivery and learning activities. Below are some resources to help you make your sessions accessible and effective learning spaces:
