Special event

Hosted continental breakfast and open house

Join us for a hosted breakfast on the founding of a scholarly association to promote research on interdisciplinarity and internationalization: the Interdisciplinary Society for Global-Minded Pedagogy and Practice.

This society has grown out of the Learning Without Borders project community, whose members will be present to showcase our grant-funded projects and to answer your questions. Speakers Teresa Dawson (Director, Learning and Teaching Centre) and James Anglin (Professor, Child and Youth Care) will begin at 8:00 a.m. We invite you to join the conversation over coffee and to engage in the discussion by joining our listserv.

This event and the Learning Without Borders program are sponsored by the Learning and Teaching Centre, and supported by the Provost's Office and the International Office (UVic).

Host: Interdisciplinary Society for Global-Minded Pedagogy and Practice.
