UBCevents in Higher Education student engagement

Glen Weppler, working in of Ryerson University in Toronto, recently highlighted UBCevents (among other UBC initiatives) in his blog post summarizing a lecture by Dr. Debra Dawson, Director of Teaching and Learning Services at the University of Western Ontario on the challenges of student engagement in Canadian higher education. (The rest of Glen’s Higher Education blog is a great read as well, touching  on a range of topics relevant to those working to improve the experience of higher education in Canada.)

While we’re certainly flattered and honoured, we know this is really reflecting the success of the campus community in taking up and using UBCevents to help students (and many others) learn and get involved in activities around campus.

There’s lots more we want to do, but everyone here at the UBCevents team appreciates the kind words! Thanks to Glen, and thanks to our users!
