Brave Spaces ≠ Safe Spaces

May 9 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


This event is part of the 2024 Celebrate Learning Week, taking place from May 6–10, 2024.

In Issue 4, RESPECT magazine asked UBC students about blind spots that limit learning experiences and professional preparedness. This presentation carries the discussion forward with panelists about ways we create spaces that provide a safety net for conversations on promoting free speech, responding to gender stereotypes, and using generative AI for improved learning experience.


  • Ximena Cayo Barrantes, Undergraduate student, UBC Okanagan
  • Anita Chaudhuri, Assistant Professor of Teaching, FCCS, UBC Okanagan
  • Rishma Chooniedass, Assistant Professor of Teaching, FHSD, UBC Okanagan
  • Jiayi Lu, Undergraduate student, UBC Okanagan
  • Other panelists to be added.
