The university has committed $500,000 in recurring funding to support initiatives that develop both credit and non-credit online learning opportunities, through the Online Learning Advancement Fund (OLAF). The Office of the Provost and Vice-President, Academic, UBC Vancouver, created this fund in alignment with Strategy 11: Education Renewal, and Strategy 13: Practical Learning, of the strategic plan.
Faculty are invited to submit a letter of intent for the OLAF by October 1, 2020. I encourage you to share this information with your team, and think about how your department can help bring UBC’s strategic plan to life.
