Transformational Thinking and Doing:
Evolving a responsive learning environment in the UBC Faculty of Land and Food Systems

Each day we create a series of learning environments for ourselves -- whatever the context. It is the responsibility of the post-secondary sector to create dynamic, flexible learning environments for current students, faculty, staff and life-long learners. The Faculty of Land and Food Systems (formerly Agricultural Sciences) continues to transform to respond to the needs of students and society. This address tells the story of 8 years of transformation with emphasis on our thinking processes and how we actually implemented (or did not!) our ideas in essence transformational thinking and doing.
