The 2023 call for proposals to the Aspire-2040 Learning Transformations (ALT-2040) Fund is now open.
The 2023 ALT-2040 Fund supports course and program innovation, student experience enhancement and educational resource development at UBC Okanagan. Selection of funded projects is guided by the transformative learning strategies of Shaping UBC’s Next Century and UBC Okanagan teaching and learning priorities expressed in aligned plans and reports (e.g. Outlook 2040, Indigenous Strategic Plan, Declaration of Truth and Reconciliation Commitments, Strategic Equity and Anti-Racism (StEAR) Framework, and Climate Emergency Task Force Report).
The ALT-2040 Fund enriches student learning experiences through three distinct funding streams:
- Open educational resources (OER) focus stream
- Course innovation partnership stream
- Learning experience enhancement stream
All proposals are due by 3:00 pm on May 15, 2023. All projects must meaningfully transform UBCO students’ learning experiences with an implementation focus and scope consistent with the funding stream. Preference is given to projects that align with one or more of the ALT-2040 Priority Focus Areas.
For additional information about the three funding streams and the application process and deadlines, please visit the ALT-2040 website. For other inquiries, please contact:
