Speaker: Paul Cubbons, Instructor, Sauder School of Business, UBC
Flexible learning is all the rage. It’s got to be good hasn’t it? Flexibility sounds so desirable for busy students. But under the “flexible learning umbrella” there exists a spectrum of possibilities, from MOOCs to flipped classrooms, from online through blended to face-to-face, and from synchronous to asynchronous, self-paced and automated to scheduled and facilitated. This talk will focus on some of the work undertaken around flipped classroom enablement, and curating resources in a way that allows for multiple uses. Examples are drawn from the Flexible Learning supported project led by the Sauder School of Business, partnering with Entrepreneurship@ubc, CTLT and UBC Librarians.
Paul Cubbons spent 15 years in industry, primarily in consumer packaged goods marketing and innovation before beginning his academic career. At Sauder, Paul leads the Entrepreneurship group and is the business school’s partner with e@ubc in non-credit entrepreneurship programming.
