Great cities have always been centres of power, commerce and culture – and hotbeds of social and political tension. Explore six great cities in various parts of the world during the 17th and 18th centuries: London, Venice, Istanbul, Delhi, Beijing and Kyoto. Each of these cities was an imperial capital and a centre of vigorous economic activity. Each one also had a diverse population that posed challenges to social harmony. Appreciate what made each of these cities unique, and how they all embodied what truly makes cities great. Lectures are richly illustrated with informative images, and a short list of recommended readings is provided. You might even come away inspired to visit – or revisit – these cities with new perspectives, when global travel is once again possible. Every week you participate in a live online class with your instructor for six weeks. Date: Mondays, Nov 2-Dec 7. Time:10am-11:30am (PT) Cost:$120.75 (inc GST).

Buddhist philosophy has long influenced popular discourse, and continues to engage with modern neuroscience and physics. Cross-cultural dialogues in philosophy are valuable and increase our understanding across languages and times. This course introduces the rich and vibrant world of Buddhist philosophical thought by comparing and contrasting Buddhist and Western (especially Greek) philosophical ideas of the good life and human happiness. Explore and discuss ideas from classical Buddhist cosmology, practical ethics, psychology and mythology. Along with slides and videos, you’re introduced to texts and images from nearly 2,500 years of Buddhist history, accessible readings in the Pāli canon, Tibetan literature and material from today’s Western Buddhist authors and critics. If you’re interested in philosophy, the history of ideas, the nature of human happiness or the ongoing dialogue between science, philosophy and religions, this course offers a launch pad for new thinking and ideas. This course is for everyone; no prior knowledge of the subject is needed to take this course. Every week you participate in a live online class with your instructor for six weeks.

We live in a culture that emphasizes being perfect as a virtue in everything from body image to relationships to career achievements. The problem is that life and being human, in spite of our best efforts, is messier than this. Having high standards is one thing, but taking a perfectionistic approach to life can actually get in the way of your success.

Canvas Commons is a searchable, worldwide repository of educational resources—such as images, pages, quizzes, assignments, modules, and entire courses—that have been made publicly available for use in Canvas. Anyone with an instructor or administrative account in Canvas can access or share educational resources to the Commons. Canvas Commons makes sharing and using resources easy: you can search through a broad range of open resources created at UBC and beyond that can be added and deployed in your course in minutes. Likewise, sharing to the Commons, for a typical Canvas course, takes less than a minute. This hands-on session will focus on the pragmatic elements of working with Canvas Commons, including how to find and import resources, best practices for sharing your educational materials within Canvas Commons, and the basics of working with open educational resources (OER) that are licensed to allow revision and reuse.

When we think of Leonardo da Vinci in the Italian Renaissance, or Mary and Percy Shelley in Georgian England, or Margaret Atwood in 21st-century Canada, we might be tempted to understand their genius by virtue of their environments. We might say that da Vinci was merely lucky to be born at the right time and in the right place; or that Atwood has a way of seeing people and things that demonstrates her experiences of urban and rural Canada. But are superb artists, scientists and leaders best explained by their environments – or are they motivated by a taste for risk and a desire to draw as many people as possible to their work? Through photographic, literary, and visual and auditory records, examine more than a dozen figures of the past five centuries who refused to be limited by their environments. Explore their personal workshops – the places they worked and the eras in which they lived – asserting their freedom to rebuild or remake the science, the art, the ethics and the morality of their times. "Genius" comes from shrewd intelligence, determination and grit, qualities that everyone has to varying degrees. Although your average citizen may or may not aspire to the greatness of the grandest geniuses, we can all observe, adopt and adapt their tools and methods. Every week you participate in a live online class with your instructor for six weeks. Date: Wednesdays, Nov 4-Dec 16, no class Nov 11. Time:10am-11:30am(PT). Cost:$120.75 (inc GST). WILLIAM (“BILL”) BRUNEAU is a professor emeritus of the UBC Department of Educational Studies. His books and other publications address the history and politics of universities, academic freedom and the history of music in Canada. His current project is a study of Bertrand Russell in the 1920s and 1930s, especially his educational writings and thought experiments of that period.

Students (and sometimes instructors) go through motivation fatigue by this time of year, so this session will present some research and techniques for supporting student motivation. Resources for student and faculty wellness, such as material on the UBC Student Services website, will be introduced. As always, we will discuss and share further resources with each other. Sarika Bose (English) and Judy Chan (Land and Food Sciences) are the co-facilitators of this community of practice. As a result of the COVID crisis, we find ourselves adapting to new circumstances in our teaching lives. We hope that the offerings we have listed below will allow us, the Contract Faculty community, to work towards practical teaching solutions and best practices. Please note that some of the sessions might be adapted as the academic year progresses.

The pandemic and international racial injustices have heightened the need for instructors to embed topics related to equity, justice and anti-oppression into their courses to increase learner capacity (or competency) to engage with these topics, but many are unsure how to do this. The Just Food project explores social justice issues by employing food as a pedagogical tool to connect theoretical understandings and terminology to elements of the day-to-day. This session will highlight the following: How to navigate the Just Food website and access resources housed on it Identify ways educators can engage with the online resources Suggest methods to use and adapt the modules for use in educator’s (virtual) classrooms The Just Food project website includes seven learning modules on various food systems themes (such as a food justice primer, migrant labour, indigenous foodways, international development) and a facilitator’s guide. Each learning module contains a backgrounder on the theme, suggested learning outcomes, sample readings and discussion questions, in-depth activity instructions, and examples of assessments. The learning modules are suitable for adaptation across many disciplines, including agriculture, food studies, nutrition, geography, sociology, anthropology, education, planning, political sciences, and more.

The Centre for Student Involvement and Careers, in partnership with the UBC Hub of Ten Thousand Coffees, is excited to bring you a virtual mentorship and networking opportunity to connect with UBC Alumna, Sara Peacock. This event is open to all students and alumni. Walking Outside of Your Comfort Zone Sara grew up in the South Okanagan Valley and, from an early age, she absorbed her grandparents’ philosophy of caring for the earth and making the most of what you are given in life. After completing her Bachelor of Arts Degree at UBC Okanagan majoring in English and minoring in Psychology, she ditched her plans of doing a BEd and moved to Vancouver to pursue her interest in fashion. After creating her own opportunities and finding the value in saying “yes”, Sara earned a position as the Runway Show Coordinator at Eco-Fashion Week, a Vancouver-based event series focused on creating a sustainable future within the fashion industry. Through the event, she met her next opportunity— a made-to-order indie bridal brand called Truvelle. With Sara as the Marketing Director, the brand grew from one label and a small local boutique to a standout in the industry with four brands under its umbrella and a retail presence worldwide. At the top of 2020, Sara has now moved back to where it all began to continue her lifework of building brands with a bigger purpose. At Pela, Sara leads the charge on building a global community who is passionate about the brand’s mission to create a sustainable future for all, one small act at a time. To RSVP for this event: 1.

Free. Green College Leading Scholars' Series Building Worlds in Uncertain Times: Power, Culture, Pedagogy Strange Bedfellows: Law, Art and the Crimes of Justice Desmond Manderson, Law, Australian National University 5-6:30 pm, Online presentation via Zoom You might think law and art, the innovative field in which Desmond Manderson is a global pioneer, are strange bedfellows. Here he takes as his subject Rafael Cauduro’s <i>Crimes of Justice</i>, a vast mural painted on the walls of the Supreme Court of Mexico. Far from images of justice and power that glorify the state, Cauduro’s work depicts with visceral power the criminality of the legal system itself. It is the most searing critique of injustice ever to grace a major court building anywhere in the world. Followed by round-table discussion with Green College Leading Scholars: Julen Etxabe, Law; Vincent Gélinas-Lemaire, French, Hispanic and Italian; Elizabeth Lagresa-González, French, Hispanic and Italian; Patrick Rizzotti, Theatre and Film.

IOF Seminar Series: http://bit.ly/IOFseminars Speaker: Dr. Boris Worm is a Killam Research Professor in Marine Conservation Biology at Dalhousie University In this presentation Dr. Boris Worm will argue that humanity has reached a critical turning point in our relationship with the ocean. We now comprehend our collective impacts and dependence on the sea and have the opportunity to work towards recovery at a global scale. He will present evidence that substantial rebuilding of marine ecosystems is possible over the next 30 years, assuming that local solutions are scaled to the global level, and integrated across national boundaries and diverging interests. Building ocean literacy, especially among youth, is identified as a critical prerequisite towards realizing that vision BIO: Boris Worm is a Killam Research Professor in Marine Conservation Biology at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

One of the key challenges to collaborative practice between university-based researchers and Indigenous communities is to foster equitable knowledge co-production with all stakeholders through the sharing of data. Increasingly this task is mediated by digital systems, but there is no single solution that serves all needs. This seminar series brings together research partnership teams that have developed and employed digital knowledge mobilization solutions to their work. Our ambition is to explore existing efforts and anticipate future digital solutions for research partnerships. Venue: This seminar series is presented via Zoom at 3-4:30 PM (PDT) on selected Fridays in the Fall. Please contact Andrew Martindale (andrew.martindale@ubc.ca) to get an e-invite to the series.

Tuesday, November 10, 2020, 10am-12pm PDT The personal statement is written for admission to graduate and professional programs at academic institutions like UBC. But what does personal mean in an academic context? How do writers construct an appropriate professional identity? Research shows that personal statements must reflect the values of the profession, and that the personal self you construct in the statement must be a relevant self. That is, relevant to the chosen profession or discipline. This workshop draws on research to introduce participants to some of the typical stylistic features of the personal statement, such as personal narrative, identity construction, and self-promotion, and includes dedicated time for participants to revise a statement and receive feedback from the facilitators and other participants. Therefore, this workshop is most useful for those with a draft of a personal statement underway. <strong>Facilitator:</strong> Dr. Patty Kelly, Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication <strong>Date & Time:</strong> Tuesday, November 10, 2020, 10am-12pm PDT For questions concerning the Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication contact <a href="mailto:cwsc.info@ubc.ca">cwsc.info@ubc.ca</a>.

UBC’s School of Public Policy and Global Affairs is proud to host Ibram X. Kendi, National Book award-winning historian and author of Stamped From The Beginning and How to Be an Antiracist, as part of our 2020 Phil Lind Initiative series on “Thinking While Black.” This event will be moderated by El Jones, spoken word poet, an educator, journalist, and community activist. Reserve your ticket today for this free public event. The webinar link and passcode will be shared with registrants prior to the event. Talk Title: “How to Be an Antiracist” When the first Black president headed into the White House, Americans were imagining their nation as colorblind and went so far as to call it post-racial. With the arrival of Donald Trump many people are awakening and seeing racial reality for the first time. With opened minds, people are actively trying to understand racism. In this deeply personal and empowering lecture, Kendi shifts the discussion from how not to be racist, to how to be an antiracist. He shares his own racist ideas and how he overcame them. He provides direction to people and institutions who want more than just band-aid programs, but actual antiracist action that builds an antiracist America. Blackness as a form, concept and experience, has fundamentally shaped American iconographies, language, media, and cultural productions. This series invites us to consider Blackness as both a culture and a mode of thinking. This series will meditate on the structures of race in North America and will spotlight the seemingly disconnected forms of racial violence that hide in plain sight. How, despite shifts in rhetoric and political policy, have so many forms of racial violence persisted? How, we ask, can we rethink ourselves by understanding our relations to blackness?

IOF Seminar Series: http://bit.ly/IOFseminars Speaker: Dr. Dana Miller, Senior Policy Advisor, Oceana Europe <img src="https://fisheries.sites.olt.ubc.ca/files/2020/02/IUUboat-slide.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="300" class="alignright size-full wp-image-15545" /> Given existing weaknesses in international frameworks for fisheries governance, illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing is a notoriously difficult issue to tackle and assistance from the private sector is needed to overcome these challenges. In 2016, research completed at the University of British Columbia uncovered a relationship between IUU fishing and marine insurance, highlighting a new strategy for confronting this issue. If insurers and brokers improve due diligence processes and prevent illicit operators from gaining access to their services, they may find it more difficult to continue fishing and maintain financial viability. Furthermore, insurers can help to improve transparency and accountability within the fishing sector through requiring insured vessels to be registered with an International Maritime Organization (IMO) number or to be equipped with and actively use publicly accessible vessel tracking technology. The insurance sector can therefore potentially play a significant role in helping to combat IUU fishing. For the past several years, the non-profit ocean conservation organisation Oceana has been actively engaging with the marine insurance sector in efforts to implement this strategy. In 2017, over 30 leading insurers, reinsurers and brokers from around the world publicly committed to not knowingly insure or facilitate the insuring of IUU fishing vessels. In 2019, risk assessment guidelines on this topic were produced in collaboration with insurance industry stakeholders and widely disseminated within the sector. Recent examples of vessels being apprehended months after losing coverage suggest the strategy could be working to help reduce IUU fishing. To maximise this potential for impact, advocacy efforts are now expanding focus to mobilize not only insurers, but also other businesses that provide services to global fishing fleets.

Working Tools Seminar Series: Community-Facing Data Management Platforms for Indigenous-University Partnerships Developing a Culturally Appropriate Digital Archive for Métis Archaeological Heritage Kisha Supernant, Anthropology, University of Alberta 3-4:30 pm, Online presentation via <a href="https://ubc.zoom.us/j/64598952677">Zoom</a> Organized by the Indigenous/Science Research Cluster. Many Indigenous communities have little to no access to the material remains of their ancestors, due to the colonial structures that define ownership and stewardship over historical resources in Canada. For the Métis Nation, the challenges of colonial history and the dispossession of the Métis communities has meant that they are not always considered in conversations around repatriation and access to ancestral belongings. In response to the lack of access to archaeological and ethnographic data for the Métis, we are creating a digital archive of Métis archaeological materials, integrating legacy collections and newly generated data into a database that is accessible for community partners, researchers, and, where appropriate, broader audiences. See <a href="https://greencollege.ubc.ca/civicrm/event/info%3Fid%3D1166%26reset%3D1">here</a> for more details on this event.

One of the key challenges to collaborative practice between university-based researchers and Indigenous communities is to foster equitable knowledge co-production with all stakeholders through the sharing of data. Increasingly this task is mediated by digital systems, but there is no single solution that serves all needs. This seminar series brings together research partnership teams that have developed and employed digital knowledge mobilization solutions to their work. Our ambition is to explore existing efforts and anticipate future digital solutions for research partnerships. Venue: This seminar series is presented via Zoom at 3-4:30 PM (PDT) on selected Fridays in the Fall. Please contact Andrew Martindale (andrew.martindale@ubc.ca) to get an e-invite to the series.

The UBC Gender Equity & STEM Conference will centre on the role of women and gender-oppressed communities in STEM fields in the past, present, and future. These communities have historically been underrepresented and disadvantaged in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). The goal of this conference is to increase awareness and deepen understanding of the complexities of the gender gap in STEM, facilitate discussion around common experiences of gender-oppressed communities, and equip attendees with the inspiration and motivation to tackle the STEM gender gap in their own spheres. Everyone is welcome to attend! The UBC Gender Equity & STEM Conference 2020 is hosted by the UBC Young Women for STEM in partnership with the UBC Department of Physics and Astronomy. Important: This event will be held virtually over Zoom. Please purchase tickets under same name as the Zoom account you will be using, and the email where you would like to receive the invitation link.

Digital Wellness Project for Young Indigenous Men The identity of young Indigenous men is extremely important to their ability to live happy and healthy lives. However, little is known about how young Indigenous men use digital media to develop their identity and the impacts this has on health and wellness. This project seeks to bring together young Indigenous men in a community-based participatory project to understand the ways that digital media may be influencing their identity, health and wellness. We will be co-researching with a small group (~6) of young Indigenous men (<30 years old) who are undergraduates at UBC Okanagan to empower these men to create and answer questions related to their digital media use, identity, and health and wellness. The knowledge created from this project will be used to create future Indigenous Digital Wellness projects that seek to promote the development of positive identities within Indigenous youth. This is a CIHR-funded project being run in partnership with Aboriginal Programs and Services Center at UBC Okanagan. Liam R. King, BSc., is a Cree-Metis scholar currently completing his MSc., specializing in Indigenous Health and Wellness. Liam’s research interests include community-based participatory research with young Indigenous people’s and investigating the intersections of digital media, Indigenous identity, gender, health and wellness. Liam is also one of three recipients of the 2020 ICER Scholarhip. To register, please email: icer.ok@ubc.ca by 11 am Nov. 18 This will be via Zoom.

FREE. The Course Design Intensive (CDI) is an intensive program in which participants work, individually and collaboratively, to design or re-design a course they are (or will be) teaching. Throughout the workshop, participants will acquire a broadened understanding of course design concepts, and will gain skills and tools they can apply to their own course. The focus of the workshop is on having participants work with the major concepts and questions that need to be considered as they design a course. Ultimately, the goal of the CDI is to support instructors as they work to enhance their students’ learning. Once you have completed this initial registration process for the CDI, you will be asked to complete a pre-survey to establish your eligibility for the CDI, and to ensure we best meet your needs during the CDI. Once you’ve completed the pre-survey, you’ll be contacted by email to complete your registration. Upon completion of the Course Design Intensive you will be able to: 1. Approach the design of your course from a learning centered orientation. 2. Apply principles of alignment to develop learning outcomes and select aligned assessment methods and learning activities. 3. Assess various learning activities and technologies for their value in supporting the learning outcomes you have developed and propose how they may be incorporated into your course design. 4. Engage in peer learning as a means of enhancing your teaching practice and student learning. Format of the CDI: The CDI is a three-day workshop, typically a Monday, Wednesday and a Friday, giving you two days in-between to independently work on your course design. Additional support is provided to you on the in-between days. The remote offering will follow this schedule, with a blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning activities held throughout the three days.

IOF Seminar Series Speaker: Karen Sack President & CEO, Ocean Unite Co-Chair, Ocean Risk and Resilience Action Alliance The Ocean which feeds us and regulates our climate is changing at the fastest rate in human history. Eight hundred million people are at risk of coastal flooding within a generation. And ocean-related risks are multiplying. We need to understand these risks and we need to build resilience to them. We can do this by valuing and then investing in coastal ecosystems - reefs, wetlands, mangroves. Then we need to work together to drive systemic change. The Ocean Risk Resilience and Action Alliance (ORRAA) is an example of a multi-sector alliance that pioneers finance and insurance products that incentivize investment in nature-based solutions, with a focus on protecting the communities that need it the most.

Working Tools Seminar Series: Community-Facing Data Management Platforms for Indigenous-University Partnerships Indigenous Heritage Futures: Caring for the Past in a Grand Ronde Way Sara Gonzalez and Ian Kretzler, Anthropology, University of Washington 3-4:30 pm, Online presentation via <a href="https://ubc.zoom.us/j/64598952677">Zoom</a> Organized by the Indigenous/Science Research Cluster. In the language of self-determination, Indigenous archaeologies are expressions of the sovereignty of tribal nations to determine how tribal heritage will be cared for, now and into the future. U.S. Tribal Nations, however, encounter several challenges in articulating sovereignty-based approaches to archaeology and historic preservation. These include a lack of funding and, most significant, the difficulty of operating within a legal framework for heritage protection that was not designed to include the specific needs or interests of tribal nations.

One of the key challenges to collaborative practice between university-based researchers and Indigenous communities is to foster equitable knowledge co-production with all stakeholders through the sharing of data. Increasingly this task is mediated by digital systems, but there is no single solution that serves all needs. This seminar series brings together research partnership teams that have developed and employed digital knowledge mobilization solutions to their work. Our ambition is to explore existing efforts and anticipate future digital solutions for research partnerships. Venue: This seminar series is presented via Zoom at 3-4:30 PM (PDT) on selected Fridays in the Fall. Please contact Andrew Martindale (andrew.martindale@ubc.ca) to get an e-invite to the series.

Kennedy Town is named after Arthur Edward Kennedy, the seventh Governor of Hong Kong, who first developed this fringe of the city some 100 years ago. Today, Kennedy Town has gentrified into a vibrant neighbourhood with a mix of instagrammable spots and historical relics that carry stories of the lost City of Victoria and the spooky past of the plague. Join The Chinese University of Hong Kong on an interactive tour of Kennedy Town in real time.

FREE. The Course Design Intensive (CDI) is an intensive program in which participants work, individually and collaboratively, to design or re-design a course they are (or will be) teaching. Throughout the workshop, participants will acquire a broadened understanding of course design concepts, and will gain skills and tools they can apply to their own course. The focus of the workshop is on having participants work with the major concepts and questions that need to be considered as they design a course. Ultimately, the goal of the CDI is to support instructors as they work to enhance their students’ learning. Once you have completed this initial registration process for the CDI, you will be asked to complete a pre-survey to establish your eligibility for the CDI, and to ensure we best meet your needs during the CDI. Once you’ve completed the pre-survey, you’ll be contacted by email to complete your registration. Upon completion of the Course Design Intensive you will be able to: 1. Approach the design of your course from a learning centered orientation. 2. Apply principles of alignment to develop learning outcomes and select aligned assessment methods and learning activities. 3. Assess various learning activities and technologies for their value in supporting the learning outcomes you have developed and propose how they may be incorporated into your course design. 4. Engage in peer learning as a means of enhancing your teaching practice and student learning. Format of the CDI: The CDI is a three-day workshop, typically a Monday, Wednesday and a Friday, giving you two days in-between to independently work on your course design. Additional support is provided to you on the in-between days. The remote offering will follow this schedule, with a blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning activities held throughout the three days.

This event is open to all students and alumni. Stress Resilience Wouldn’t it be great if things just weren’t so stressful? Rich will be sharing some of his own story to illustrate how-to and how-not-to navigate stressful times. He will share useful tools and tips you can start using right away to help you stay on top in stressful times. Rich graduated from the University of Edinburgh with 1st class honours in Economics and Management science, became a qualified ACA accountant and is now a CFO & COO of a successful multi-million-dollar business in the ski industry. Sounds great right? Well, the rollercoaster journey has taught him some valuable lessons in the world of business, especially when it comes to navigating challenging personal and social scenarios. After his year abroad in UBC, during his 3rd year of university, he thought he had experienced the best year of his life. School was going great, he was travelling, enjoying the outdoors (skiing) and had secured an Investment Banking job at Bank of American Merrill Lynch - he was living "the dream". After University and discovering the real world, his dreams were smashed and he had to rebuild. He realized that school does not teach you everything and now wants to share his insights with those who are just at the start of 'their dream' or trying to figure out 'what next'?

This virtual event is hosted by the Phil Lind Initiative at UBC’s School of Public Policy and Global Affairs. Reserve your ticket today for this free public event. The webinar link and passcode will be shared with registrants prior to the event. Blackness as a form, concept and experience, has fundamentally shaped American iconographies, language, media, and cultural productions. This series invites us to consider Blackness as both a culture and a mode of thinking. This series will meditate on the structures of race in North America and will spotlight the seemingly disconnected forms of racial violence that hide in plain sight. How, despite shifts in rhetoric and political policy, have so many forms of racial violence persisted? How, we ask, can we rethink ourselves by understanding our relations to blackness?

FREE. This session co-presented as part of the CTLT Anti-Racist Teaching Series and Indigenous Initiatives Classroom Climate Series. In this workshop we will explore complex classroom dynamics, such as microaggressions and tensions when students have conflicting worldviews. Drawing from select Open Case Studies at UBC that highlight Indigenous student experiences in diverse classrooms, participants will work in breakout groups to unpack the scenarios and discuss how they resonate with our current classroom contexts and climates. Concepts and topics that may be raised include: tokenism, conflicting worldviews, burden of representation, course topics that impact students personally, and self-determination. Participants who have taken other workshops within the Anti-Racist Teaching Series will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned to their analysis of cases and come up with practical strategies. Those new to the series will bring their own knowledge and experiences to the discussion and have the opportunity to actively engage with anti-racist concepts and topics by working through specific case scenarios.

IOF Seminar Series Speaker: Dr. Andrea Frommel, Assistant Professor, UBC Land and Food Systems This talk aims to integrate two traditionally disparate fields, climate change and aquaculture. With the rapidly expanding aquaculture industry, the future of the industry is dependent on its sustainability. One of the major bottlenecks in aquaculture production is the poor survival and growth in the early life stages. My past work has focussed on the effects of elevated CO2 concentrations consistent with ocean acidification, upwelling and tidal mixing on the survival, health, condition and growth of larval fishes. In aquaculture, high density rearing environments and land-based recirculating systems routinely accumulate CO2 levels 10-fold above those found in nature and predicted with ocean acidification. At LFS, I will research ways to increase survival, health, growth and welfare of the early life-stages of fish in aquaculture in the context of sustainability and environmental soundness.

One of the key challenges to collaborative practice between university-based researchers and Indigenous communities is to foster equitable knowledge co-production with all stakeholders through the sharing of data. Increasingly this task is mediated by digital systems, but there is no single solution that serves all needs. This seminar series brings together research partnership teams that have developed and employed digital knowledge mobilization solutions to their work. Our ambition is to explore existing efforts and anticipate future digital solutions for research partnerships. Venue: This seminar series is presented via Zoom at 3-4:30 PM (PDT) on selected Fridays in the Fall. Please contact Andrew Martindale (andrew.martindale@ubc.ca) to get an e-invite to the series.

Evidence from current climate science research suggests that anthropogenic activity will cause drastic changes to our environment, including global warming of over 1.5 degrees celcius in the next 10-30 years, extreme weather patterns, and rising sea levels—some of these changes have already been observed in British Columbia. These environmental impacts have consequences for human health, with natural hazards disproportionately impacting rural populations.
