In addition to creating and renovating learning spaces, we carry out various campus-wide initiatives to improve teaching and learning at UBC. These projects are prompted by UBC initiatives as well as priorities set by the Learning Spaces team. They range from expanding the technological capabilities of learning spaces to improving accessibility. Take a look at some recent initiatives.
Learning Spaces Improvements Projects
The Learning Spaces Team works to continually improve learning spaces on campus. One way that renovation projects can be considered is by submitting them through the Learning Spaces Improvement Projects process.
