Nomme, Kathy M.; Pollock, Carol – University of British Columbia Press, 2022
Maybe you're an undergraduate or graduate student who's just been appointed a TA. Or maybe you're a postdoctoral student or a new hire with limited teaching experience.

Weller, Martin – University of British Columbia Press, 2022
Never before has technology played such a central role in education. In 2020, seemingly over night, technology took centre stage in the delivery of not just some education, but all education and the metaphors to describe this time leaned heavily on catastrophic terms of revolution, tsunami, and disruption. But why do apocalyptic metaphors abound…

Cutrara, Samantha – University of British Columbia Press, 2020
We are all our history. Yet in Canadian classrooms, students are often left questioning how they can study a past that does not reflect their present.

Carr-Stewart, Sheila, Ed. – University of British Columbia Press, 2019
In 1867, Canada's federal government became responsible for the education of Indigenous peoples: Status Indians and some Métis would attend schools on reserves; non-Status Indians and some Métis would attend provincial schools.

Delaney, Douglas E., Ed.; Engen, Robert C., Ed.; Fitzpatrick, Meghan, Ed. – University of British Columbia Press, 2018
Common military education was the lifeblood of the armies, navies, and air forces of the British Empire.

Cowin, Robert – University of British Columbia Press, 2018
The historical literature about postsecondary education in British Columbia, as in many jurisdictions, is fragmented. Scholarly works have tended to recount the development of a single institution or a single sector: colleges and universities, vocational colleges, apprenticeship, or continuing education. And not all sectors, whether comprised of…

Henry, Frances; Dua, Enakshi; James, Carl E.; Kobayashi, Audrey; Li, Peter; Ramos, Howard; Smith, Malinda S. – University of British Columbia Press, 2017
The university is often regarded as a bastion of liberal democracy where equity and diversity are promoted and racism does not exist. In reality, the university still excludes many people and is a site of racialization that is subtle, complex, and sophisticated. While some studies do point to the persistence of systemic barriers to equity and…
