Going the distance

Continuing Studies' Distance Education and Technology group has won a B.C.Innovation Award from the Centre for Curriculum, Transfer and Technology. The award recognizes the group's groundbreaking work developing the Post Graduate Certificate in Technology-Based Distributed Learning.

The online certificate program includes five courses that provide educational practitioners with the information they need to teach online. It was developed with the Monterrey Institute of Technology in Mexico and is delivered internationally over the Internet.

New Canadian Studies Centre coming

A new International Canadian Studies Centre will be established at UBC next month. It will provide a focus for international research and learning on Canada both within and beyond UBC.

Co-ordinating both graduate research in Canadian Studies and housing the undergraduate program in Canadian Studies, the centre will link research and learning at both levels and provide leadership in current and future research on Canada.

The centre will house the Brenda and David McLean Chair in Canadian Studies and the Program in Canadian Studies and will host various symposia as well as co-ordinate and advance international collaborative research projects and a mentoring program.
