|Title||ARTS Learning Plan Online Platform|
Keeling & Associates identified UBC as a place of institutional complexity, academic complexity, and a fragmented student experience. Students are offered diverse, outstanding experiences at UBC, but many don’t find out about them or undervalue their significance in their learning experience throughout their degree.
The Faculty of Arts has piloted an online learning plan (www.ip.arts.ubc.ca) that provides Arts undergraduate students with a framework for many resources and educationally enriching opportunities offered to help them develop an intentional plan for their UBC experience, and to engage in the activities highlighted in Place and Promise. More than an individualized learning plan, this holistic approach to learning across campus is a platform by which students can discuss their learning with peers, faculty, and staff.
The online plan is a good beginning, but necessary improvements are needed: design improvements for increased usability and functionality; integration with UBC systems for seamless referral and connection to program and resource providers; technological applications to better connect to students’ own platforms; development of back-end functionality for improved reporting, communication, and staff interaction; and finally content and applications for reflective learning.
