UBC Okanagan Student Town Hall

Did you miss the town hall? Watch the recording below!

Are you wondering what will it be like to learn online at UBC Okanagan in September? What will it be like to take your first university class online? What about classes where the connection between students is central to learning? How will experiential learning opportunities, like labs, be handled in our new online learning environment?

At UBC Okanagan the student experience is at the heart of everything we do and we are working relentlessly to deliver the high-quality UBC education you expect, wherever you may be.

We understand that you have questions and we welcome you to join us for a UBC Okanagan Student Town Hall to get a better sense of what learning online will look like and get more information.

A panel of UBC faculty members and a student will each speak towards a different facet of the online learning experience before the floor is opened to your questions. Please note that while we will do our best to answer all questions the focus of this webinar will be student learning experience.
