At this Symposium, UBC’s Contract Faculty will present their discipline-specific research, as well as innovations in pedagogical practices. The Symposium will provide an opportunity for Contract Faculty at UBC to give research-based papers on specific disciplines and on pedagogical practices, offer a teaching workshop, and showcase their research in an accompanying special exhibition of publications. Panels on topics such as academic freedom and marginalization will present collaborative work between Contract Faculty from UBC and other Canadian campuses. Despite many challenges, Contract Faculty members at UBC have produced impressive research in many fields, and are at the forefront of excellence in shaping student learning and experience. This Symposium is intended to transform Contract Faculty work from invisibility to shining visibility.
