This year, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of the Provost and Vice-President, Academic, UBC Vancouver, redeployed $2-million dollars in funding from the Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (TLEF) to help support Faculties in their efforts to transition courses online and ensure high-quality learning experiences for students. In addition to the $2-million redeployment funding, the TLEF also awarded $711,058 in renewal funding to eight Small TLEF Innovation projects and six Large TLEF Transformation projects. This year’s funding round accepted renewal applications for second- and third-year funding.
Please visit the TLEF website to learn more about this year’s funding.
The TLEF supports UBC’s strategic plan Strategy 14: Interdisciplinary Education, in assisting the university in further developing academic structures that foster and support opportunities for students from different perspectives and disciplines to work together on complex or emergent problems. It is funded entirely through a portion of UBC Vancouver student tuition. Since its inception in 1991, the Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (TLEF) has supported more than 1,200 teaching and learning projects.
