Are you ready for UBC? This free webinar helps students and families navigate the high school-to-university transition. Getting ready for college starts before you apply, and continues well after you get to campus. You have to be prepared academically, of course, but also mentally. You need to be ready to make some major changes in the ways you study, think, and make life decisions. What does it take to truly succeed in university? What types of academic and social situations are new college students typically unprepared for--even if they’ve always gotten good grades? What are the “unwritten curriculums” of higher education? What does a college student need to know about managing time and money? And, most importantly, how can you prepare yourself to make the most of this potentially life-changing period of exploration, growth, and discovery? Hosted by professors at Stanford University and the University of British Columbia, this free 75-minute webinar is intended for students and families navigating this high school-to-college transition. A panel of university educators and experts in student academic success will answer your pre-submitted questions, and share their experiences of what it takes to succeed in community colleges and in public and private universities in North America. Submit your questions in advance for a chance to have them answered live. (NOTE: Once you register, you will receive a link where you can submit questions for the panel.)

Cultural diversity is seen by populists as a challenge to the “traditional” myths and ethics of closed societies. Longstanding cosmopolitan values of pluralism have been overwhelmed by forces of neo-liberal globalization. Rapidly emerging and increasingly powerful new technologies threaten jobs and call into question our shared understandings of human autonomy, creativity and privacy. In an era of such massive unpredictability, the best we can hope for is that we will strive, collectively and individually, to exercise mature judgment – a practical reason – demonstrating prudence gleaned from experience.

Knowledge is constructed mutually through our social interactions. Practices are built within society by “communities of practice” that share an interest or even a passion for something like law, football, or the further development of artificial intelligence. The intellectual traditions canvassed in this lecture reveal a unique type of “authority” in our social world, one not discussed by Max Weber. This is “epistemic practical authority.” It is built up through social discourse and action. Ours is not a world of static “being,” but of dynamic “becoming.” See <a href="https://greencollege.ubc.ca/2021-22-j-v-clyne-lectures-ubc-hosted-green-college">here</a> for more details on this event.

Free. Do you have questions and challenges about creating meaningful and successful learning experiences for your students? Maybe you want help in the process of teaching your course in online, hybrid or blended modes. Request a virtual one on one course consultation with a Learning Designer to explore ways to enhance your students’ learning experience. This is the opportunity for you to connect with a Learning Designer regarding any questions you have, or feedback you’d like, especially related to teaching your course for online, hybrid or blended delivery. Bring your ideas and questions. Together we will examine them and explore how to enhance the course design and implementation. We can give guidance to incorporate online instructional strategies that support: - identifying key areas in your course where you may need to adjust your practice, expectations, or learning activities for the online, blended or hybrid environment - how you might use both synchronous and asynchronous modes of teaching in your course. - motivating students to engage with their learning (e.g. structuring the course effectively, connecting course objectives to the “real world”) - connecting students to their peers and instructors (e.g. collaborative and interactive activities, peer assessments) - self-regulated learning (e.g. self-assessing readiness for learning, learner autonomy) - evaluating your course design (e.g. aligning assessments with learning objectives, course usability) - accessibility (e.g. ensuring materials can be used by all students) - managing your workload in facilitating student activities and assessments If this time doesn’t fit to your schedule, let us know and we’ll adjust to yours.

First, legal norms arise in the context of social norms based on shared understandings. Second, law is distinguishable from other types of social ordering not because of its provenance from a particular hierarchical “source” of law but by its adherence to criteria of legality. Third, the criteria of legality must be constantly maintained through continuing practices of legality. The rule of law can only be built successfully together in communities of practice that then reach into the wider community. To the extent that participants in law view it as purely instrumental, or as an intellectual game where the consequences for real people are of little import, they are undermining the rule of law and exposing our fellow human beings to potentially devastating consequences.

Free admission. <img src="https://belkin.ubc.ca/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/03_Globule.jpg> Drift: Art and Dark Matter September 10-December 5, 2021 GALLERY HOURS: Tuesday to Friday, 10am-5pm; Saturday and Sunday, noon-5pm; closed Mondays and Holidays An invisible matter is having a gravitational effect on everything. Without the gravity of this “dark” matter, galaxies would fly apart. Observational data in astroparticle physics indicate that it exists, but so far dark matter hasn’t been directly detected. Given the contours of such an unknown, artists Nadia Lichtig, Josèfa Ntjam, Anne Riley and Jol Thoms reflect on the “how” and “why” of physics and art as diverse and interrelating practices of knowledge. Through openness to exchange between disciplines, they have created works that are sensory agents between scientific ideas of dark matter and the exploration of that which has never been directly sensed. For Drift: Art and Dark Matter, these four artists were invited to make new work while engaging with physicists, chemists and engineers contributing to the search for dark matter at SNOLAB’s facility in Sudbury, two kilometres below the surface of the Earth. The title Drift draws from the mining term for a horizontal tunnel, in this case the hot underground passageway in the copper and nickel mine stretching between the elevator and the clean lab spaces of SNOLAB. The project thereby begins from a reflection on the forms and energies that connect physics to art, labour, landscapes, cultures and histories.

Indigenous students are welcome to drop-in to connect with Amy Vozel, Manager of Student Support Services with the Early Alert Program in the Office of the Vice President, Students. Sometimes we face challenges and don’t know where to turn or who to ask for help. Whether it be concerns related to our health, our academics, finances and/or a variety of other realms, life happens and difficulties arise that may stand in the way of being able to thrive as a person, and as a student. It’s OK to ask for help. Through the Early Alert Program, Amy supports student wellbeing by partnering with colleagues and units across campus to connect students with the most appropriate resources and support services to (ideally) allow for earlier support before difficulties become overwhelming. Rest assured, Early Alert is confidential and is not connected to a student’s academic record. Early Alert exists to lend a supportive hand, and to navigate and streamline services to help students get back on track and move forward in their personal and professional goals at UBC. Visit Amy on Wednesdays 2-4 pm at the Wellness Centre, Room 1400 in the Life Building.

Free. This workshop has been designed for instructors who are interested in joining conversations about anti-racism and looking for an entry point to their learning journey. This session introduces fundamental concepts such as power, privilege, and positionally, which are essential for understanding racism or developing anti-racist teaching practices. The goal of this session is that participants develop a basic knowledge base about power and privilege, and its application to racism. As such, this session is not going to delve into “how to teach” with the ideas such as inclusion, equity, and anti-racism. If you already have this knowledge base, this session may not meet your expectations, and we recommend you to consider taking one of the more advanced Anti-Racist Teaching Workshops. If you have the knowledge base and still would like to engage in conversations with other participants, you are more than welcome to join the session. This session is a blend of asynchronous and synchronous components – you must complete the asynchronous module in advance of the workshop. Asynchronous Module (Pre-Work) Canvas Module Link: https://canvas.ubc.ca/courses/73178 The asynchronous module is self-paced, and it is your responsibility to ensure that you complete the module before the synchronous session. We estimate the online module to take most participants approximately 2 hours to complete. The online module was designed to introduce you to some complex issues surrounding the concepts and theoretical frameworks of identities, power, and privilege. You will be presented with self-reflective exercises, informative activities and videos to help you explore and consider how identities, power and privilege intersect with your teaching pedagogy and your personal, professional, and academic lives. Synchronous Session For the synchronous component, participants will meet through Zoom and: - Engage in conversation on concepts introduced in the module; - Share their insights from the online module; - Extend their learning into issues of racism. Our goal for this blended session is to build a strong conceptual foundation that would support participants’ further learning about anti-racism in teaching and learning.

Speaker: Dr. Stephen Palumbi Jane and Marshall Steel, Jr. Professor of Marine Biology Stanford University As oceans warm, generate more storms and become more acidified, ocean species can respond in a set of fundamental ways: move, acclimate, adapt or die. How well can ocean species adapt to climate, and what mechanisms are likely to help or hinder it? We will explore ways adaptation speeds up and slows down. On one hand, wide-spread phenotypic variation for heat resistance in corals can help rapid future adaptation. On the other hand, tradeoffs between heat resistance and other critical traits such as growth, mediated by symbiont density, might slow down the evolution of high heat resistance. Other mechanisms that affect adaptation such as super-genes in cod and crabs and minnows also change the trajectory of adaptive capacity in ocean species.

This online event, part of UBC Vancouver Homecoming 2021, is presented in partnership with the UBC Faculties of Medicine, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Arts, and Dentistry. Join to hear how the four Faculties speak to the relationship between diabetes and oral health, new technologies, heart health, patient treatments, how a sense of purpose affects disease, and how they are working to move this chronic illness to one in the past. Chronic illness affects many Canadians, including eleven million Canadians that are living with diabetes or prediabetes. With the discovery of insulin 100 years ago, this new medication has saved lives. Now that we have reached this significant milestone, what is next? How have the 100 years of insulin changed diabetes research? What is the potential for future generations and their health?

Inspired to know more about his father’s time at residential school, Kwagiulth master carver and artist Carey Newman created the Witness Blanket – a wall-sized monument that commemorates the experiences of residential Survivors and their families, as well as the children who didn’t make it home. The Witness Blanket is constructed from hundreds of everyday items collected from residential schools, churches, government buildings and cultural structures across Canada. Each object has a story to tell, each Survivor has something to say. Narrated by the artist, this 90-minute film weaves together those stories with Carey’s personal journey, examining how art can open our hearts to the pain of truth and the beauty of resiliency. The film screening will be preceded by a Musqueam welcome and opening remarks by Chief Dr. Robert Joseph and IRSHDC Academic Director Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond (Aki-Kwe). Following the film, a live Q&A with Carey and his sisters Ellen and Marion will be moderated by Dr. Turpel-Lafond. Audience members will be invited to submit questions via chat. This event is part of the UBC Indian Residential School History and Dialogue Centre’s Orange Shirt Day | National Day for Truth and Reconciliation programming. It is presented in partnership with the First Nations House of Learning, UBC Learning Circle and the Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Health. It is free and open to UBC students, staff and faculty at both campuses as well as to wider community members, however, registration is required.

Senior Scholars' Series: Intergenerational Effects of Psychological Trauma in partnership with the UBC Emeritus College <b>Epigenetics: How Nature and Nurture Together Shape Our Offspring</b> Moshe Szyf, Pharmacology and Therapeutics, McGill University; with a response by Judith Hall, Pediatrics and Medical Genetics; Foundation Fellow of Green College 5-6:30 pm, Coach House, Green College, 6201 Cecil Green Park Road, UBC It is well established that the social and physical environment early in life has long-term impact on our physical and mental health and behaviour later in life. What are the mechanisms that mediate the effects of the early environment on our health? Are these effects reversible later in life? The genetic information in DNA that we inherit from our ancestors is programmed by another layer of machinery; the epigenome. The epigenome is established during gestation but is highly attentive to cues from the internal and external environment early in life and thus serves as an interface between our static genome and the dynamic environment. We will discuss data from animal models and humans supporting the hypothesis that early-life social environment leaves its marks in our epigenome and affects stress, health and mental health later in life, creating a molecular link between nurture and nature. Although the epigenetic marks made in our genome in response to experience are extremely stable, they are also potentially reversible by epigenetic therapy, pointing to the prospect of epigenetic therapeutics in mental health.

The English poet and author Geoffrey Chaucer once observed that “in forme of speche is change." While he understood that words change, he didn’t reflect on grammar, pronunciation and word order. A written language for more than 1,200 years, today’s English is radically different from the language’s earliest written origins. Trace the English language through its three major stages: Old English (AD 500 to 1100), Middle English (1100 to 1500) and Modern English (1500 to present). Explore how pronunciation, meaning and word forms have evolved from the earliest times to now, and how sentence structure has changed. Understand the social and historical factors that bring about language change. By the end of the course, you’ll: understand the origins of English and its place with respect to other languages of the world recognize the major stages of the English language and important changes in the development of English appreciate that languages inevitably change, and that the current state of the English language is a result of these historical changes.

Indigenous students are welcome to drop-in to connect with Amy Vozel, Manager of Student Support Services with the Early Alert Program in the Office of the Vice President, Students. Sometimes we face challenges and don’t know where to turn or who to ask for help. Whether it be concerns related to our health, our academics, finances and/or a variety of other realms, life happens and difficulties arise that may stand in the way of being able to thrive as a person, and as a student. It’s OK to ask for help. Through the Early Alert Program, Amy supports student wellbeing by partnering with colleagues and units across campus to connect students with the most appropriate resources and support services to (ideally) allow for earlier support before difficulties become overwhelming. Rest assured, Early Alert is confidential and is not connected to a student’s academic record. Early Alert exists to lend a supportive hand, and to navigate and streamline services to help students get back on track and move forward in their personal and professional goals at UBC.

You can help your team to succeed in preparing for a hybrid workplace by creating a team charter. A “charter is a statement of joint purpose created by and agreed to by all team members” (Pilette, 2017). It is created by all of the members of a team, and ensures that everyone can thoughtfully and respectfully align their contributions, expectations and ways of working together with the departments purpose. In this session, you will work through each step of the charter process, starting with purpose alignment. After that, you’ll begin to define responsibility, composition or roles of the team and discuss approaches to conflict and decision making. Lastly, we will explore how to apply a set of agreed norms to build a shared understanding of how the team will work together in a respectful and trusting manner. LEARNING OUTCOMES: At the end of this session, participants will: • be able to define the characteristics of the team charter process • can apply new knowledge when defining their team’s culture • guide the step-by-step process to create their own team’s charter design Audience - Faculty and Staff - Okanagan Audience - Faculty and Staff - Vancouver Subject - Personal And Professional Development - Community Subject - Personal And Professional Development - Faculty Subject - Personal And Professional Development - Staff Type - Workshop Graduate Instructional Skills Workshop – September 9, 16, 20 & 23, 2021 https://www.calendar.events.ubc.ca/cal/event/eventView.do?subid=94584&calPath=%2Fpublic%2FEvents+Calendar%2FCentre+for+Teaching%2C+Learning+and+Technology&guid=CAL-09d22401-7a34ad23-017a-359a99da-0000000cmyubc-team@interchange.ubc.ca&recurrenceId=20210923T160000Z Thu, 23 Sep 2021 09:00 PDT Thu, September 23, 2021 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM See description.

Maybe you want help in the process of teaching your course in online, hybrid or blended modes. Request a virtual one on one course consultation with a Learning Designer to explore ways to enhance your students’ learning experience. This is the opportunity for you to connect with a Learning Designer regarding any questions you have, or feedback you’d like, especially related to teaching your course for online, hybrid or blended delivery. Bring your ideas and questions. Together we will examine them and explore how to enhance the course design and implementation. We can give guidance to incorporate online instructional strategies that support: - identifying key areas in your course where you may need to adjust your practice, expectations, or learning activities for the online, blended or hybrid environment - how you might use both synchronous and asynchronous modes of teaching in your course. - motivating students to engage with their learning (e.g. structuring the course effectively, connecting course objectives to the “real world”) - connecting students to their peers and instructors (e.g. collaborative and interactive activities, peer assessments) - self-regulated learning (e.g. self-assessing readiness for learning, learner autonomy) - evaluating your course design (e.g. aligning assessments with learning objectives, course usability) - accessibility (e.g. ensuring materials can be used by all students) - managing your workload in facilitating student activities and assessments If this time doesn’t fit to your schedule, let us know and we’ll adjust to yours.

This event for Science Literacy Week will be held online using Zoom. Have you ever shaken your head at your uncle during Thanksgiving, wondering how on earth he could support an idea that you stand firmly against? The past year has demonstrated that even science information can be highly polarized, leading us to demonize people who hold a different opinion. In this era of media overload, it can be difficult to tell quality from crap. In this session, we will work through some controversial science topics from different perspectives, ask critical questions about where our opinions come from, and consider what motivates us to believe one source of information over another. We will also share a list of our top 10 questions to ask yourself when reading science media. Fun for students and uncles everywhere! This session will cover: Hands-on critical analysis of controversial science topics Discussing how our biases may influence the way we read science media Developoing a strategy to critically evaluate science media Audience - All Students Audience - Community Audience - Faculty and Staff - Okanagan Audience - Faculty and Staff - Vancouver Subject - Learning And Research - Interdisciplinary Subject - Learning And Research - Learning Support Subject - Learning And Research - Science And Technology Subject - Learning And Research - Sustainability Type - Workshop UBC CIC presents Server-less Data Integration with AWS Glue https://www.calendar.events.ubc.ca/cal/event/eventView.do?subid=94995&calPath=%2Fpublic%2FEvents+Calendar%2FUBC+Information+Technology&guid=CAL-09d22401-7bda8052-017b-ddd8dec1-00000001myubc-team@interchange.ubc.ca&recurrenceId= Thu, 23 Sep 2021 13:00 PDT Thu, September 23, 2021 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM See description.

Speaker: Dr. Amina Schartup, Assistant Professor, Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Mercury is a naturally occurring element that has been mined and released by humans for more than 3,000 years. Inorganic mercury is released by human activities and makes up most of the mercury reservoir in the environment. However, only the organic form of mercury, methylmercury, biomagnifies in food webs and is associated with potent neurodevelopmental impacts in humans and wildlife. Understanding the microbial reactions and geochemical conditions conducive to the formation of methylmercury has been the focus of many years of research due to global impacts on the health of fish-consuming wildlife and human populations. Most of the global methylmercury exposure for human populations is from marine ecosystems due to bioaccumulation in predatory fish at levels that are a million times, or more, higher than seawater. This presentation will provide an overview of recent advances in the understanding of methylmercury formation, uptake by phytoplankton, and biomagnification in marine food webs. My approach combines new field data collection, experimental measurements, isotopic tools, and numerical modeling. I will also discuss how changes in the biogeochemistry of marine ecosystems are affecting the mercury cycle.

Increasingly, research shows that being coach-like in our approach to supporting the development of others leads to enhanced engagement and performance outcomes. Whether connecting with employees in-person or virtually, a coach approach, applied to performance development, works to surface additional insights and perspectives, while fostering commitment and accountability. Blending theory with demonstrations and practice, leaders will learn how to apply workplace coaching skills to learning and performance development conversations, thus reducing the stress of performance development and achieving better personal and organizational outcomes. LEARNING OUTCOMES: At the end of this session, participants will: - Understand how coaching skills compliment and strengthen wider communication skills - Distinguish between “informal” and “formal” coaching opportunities - Practice and rehearse the COEC Conversation model and coach-approach skills to a learning and development conversation INSTRUCTOR: Heather Turnbull Audience - Faculty and Staff - Okanagan Audience - Faculty and Staff - Vancouver Subject - Personal And Professional Development - Community Subject - Personal And Professional Development - Faculty Subject - Personal And Professional Development - Staff Type - Workshop DIY Media Support Drop-In Session https://www.calendar.events.ubc.ca/cal/event/eventView.do?subid=94584&calPath=%2Fpublic%2FEvents+Calendar%2FCentre+for+Teaching%2C+Learning+and+Technology&guid=CAL-09d22401-7bc0804b-017b-c156a6a4-0000000dmyubc-team@interchange.ubc.ca&recurrenceId=20210929T170000Z Wed, 29 Sep 2021 10:00 PDT Wed, September 29, 2021 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM See description.

In the introduction to a research article or thesis chapter, for example, writers review relevant research in order to establish a research gap or articulate a problem or need that the current study addresses. But how do writers summarize the scholarly conversation already underway and, then, join that conversation?</p> <p>This workshop introduces researchers to the typical structure of the literature review in research article introductions and theses, while accounting for variation in communicative purposes, audiences, and disciplinary differences. Participants will write or revise a draft section of a literature review during dedicated writing time and receive feedback from facilitator and peers. Therefore, this workshop is most useful for those with a research project underway.</p> <p><strong>Facilitator:</strong> <a href="https://writing.library.ubc.ca/about/who-we-are/patty-kelly/" target="_blank">Dr. Patty Kelly</a>, Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication</p> <p><strong>Date & Time:</strong> Wednesday, September 29, 2021: 10am - 12pm PT</p> <p><strong>Location:</strong>This workshop is delivered in person and on Zoom.</p> <p><strong>In person:</strong> IKBLC, Level 3, Dodson Room; <strong>Zoom:</strong> Registrants will receive the Zoom link 1 day prior to the workshop.</p> <p>The Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication does not record workshops or share workshop slides.</p> <p>Questions about this event?

About the topic: Threshold analysis is an alternative approach to using the GRADE (Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation) framework for assessing the robustness of recommendations made on the basis of the network meta-analysis. Threshold analysis quantifies precisely how much the evidence could change (for any reason, such as potential biases, or simply sampling variation) before the recommendation changes, and what the revised recommendation would be. If it is judged that the evidence could not plausibly change by more than this amount, then the recommendation is considered robust; otherwise, it is sensitive to plausible changes in the evidence. In this manner, threshold analysis directly informs decision makers and guideline developers of the robustness of treatment recommendations. About the speaker: David’s research focuses on methods for evidence synthesis, Bayesian network meta-analysis (NMA), population adjustment, and assessing the impact of bias in clinical guidelines and decision making. He is the author and maintainer of several freely-available R packages, including nmathresh for assessing sensitivity to biased evidence in NMA using threshold analysis, and multinma for performing NMA and multilevel network meta-regression with individual and aggregate data. He is a network member of the NICE Decision Support Unit, and an affiliate member of the NICE Technical Support Unit based in Bristol. About the TI Methods Speaker Series: The TI Methods Speaker Series are offered free of charge and everyone is welcome. The event is held at noon on the last Wednesday of each month. During the COVID-19 pandemic, while physical distancing measures are in effect, the TI Methods Speaker Series are offered via videoconference.

Organized resistance to new fossil fuel infrastructure, particularly conflicts over pipelines, has become a formidable political force in North America. In this book, George Hoberg examines whether such place-based environmental movements are effective ways of promoting climate action, if they might inadvertently feed resistance to the development of renewable energy infrastructure, and what other, more innovative processes of decision-making would encourage the acceptance of clean energy systems. Focusing on a series of conflicts over new oil sands pipelines, Hoberg investigates activists’ strategy of blocking fossil fuel infrastructure, often in alliance with Indigenous groups, and examines the political and environmental outcomes of these actions.

Indigenous students are welcome to drop-in to connect with Amy Vozel, Manager of Student Support Services with the Early Alert Program in the Office of the Vice President, Students. Sometimes we face challenges and don’t know where to turn or who to ask for help. Whether it be concerns related to our health, our academics, finances and/or a variety of other realms, life happens and difficulties arise that may stand in the way of being able to thrive as a person, and as a student. It’s OK to ask for help. Through the Early Alert Program, Amy supports student wellbeing by partnering with colleagues and units across campus to connect students with the most appropriate resources and support services to (ideally) allow for earlier support before difficulties become overwhelming. Rest assured, Early Alert is confidential and is not connected to a student’s academic record. Early Alert exists to lend a supportive hand, and to navigate and streamline services to help students get back on track and move forward in their personal and professional goals at UBC.
