An online toolkit for instructors will be developed utilizing the innovative knowledge mobilization approach of the Reciprocal Research Network.

A multi-year grant, the outcome of Engage UBC will be an online toolkit fostering the ability of UBC instructors/museum staff to provide enriched, interactive resources for UBC students.

Year 3: Summary

The Museum of Anthropology at UBC (MOA) is a world-renowned institution dedicated to world arts and cultures. Currently, UBC instructors and students underutilize MOA as a teaching resource. One goal of Engage UBC is to enhance UBC student learning through the creation of online resources linked to MOA. The second goal is to increase UBC student understanding of complex Indigenous issues. We are using a case study approach based on three exhibitions at MOA focussed in this area. An online toolkit (RRN Publisher) is being developed utilizing the innovative knowledge mobilization approach of the Reciprocal Research Network (RRN). Working with course instructors and students, online resource modules built using the toolkit are being developed for use in conjunction with exhibition visits. A multi-year grant, the outcome of Engage UBC is an online toolkit fostering the ability of UBC instructors/museum staff to provide enriched, interactive learning experiences for UBC students.
