Canvas Assessment Tip-sheets

Here are some tip-sheets for Canvas assessments and grading. If you need exam support or flexible teaching options (online/in-person), feel free to contact the Teaching and Learning Support Team (forestry.tls@ubc.ca).

Teaching Resources

Inclusive Teaching

UBC Centre for Teaching, Learning, and Technology (CTLT) organized resources for inclusive teaching. Feel free to check them out here, as well as another guide from the Chronicle of Higher Education here.

Academic Integrity and Plagiarism

If you have concerns about plagiarism or academic integrity with a specific student, ADS Scott Hinch (scott.hinch@ubc.ca) is your first point of contact. Additionally, UBC is in the process of building and beta-testing an academic integrity hub which provides non-punitive ways to turn an incident into more of a teachable moment. See Academic Integrity at UBC.

A new TA meeting pod is now available in the FSC atrium. TAs can book a spot at one of the three tables in the pod to meet with students. Instructions for reserving the space can be found here.
