The Learning Plenary

The UBC Experience

The former Faculty of Agricultural Sciences was faced with a diverse range of programs, from animal studies to dietetics, from food science to global resources systems, as it struggled with the challenge of preparing students for the 21st Century. We needed to help our students to meet a set of overall learning objectives, as well as understand the many connections needed to develop sustainable food systems. The Learning Plenary will focus on the Faculty's solution to these challenges and the resulting undergraduate common core that provides an example of connecting across the curriculum. Along the way we renamed the Faculty Land and Food Systems to reflect these changes.

The plenary will be in two sections separated by a 30 minute refreshment break. The plenary session will be a mix of interactive and talking heads format, and end with a Panel discussion.
