...helps to partner instructors, students and courses together to create an interdisciplinary atmosphere for better learning and understanding.

UBC Mix is an initiative that facilitates partnerships between instructors, students, and courses together to create an interdisciplinary atmosphere for better learning and understanding.

We’ve probably all had those moments where we paired two things together only to discover something new. Just think about how adding chili to chocolate can result in a delicious Mexican mole sauce. It’s not just a pairing; it’s a completely new creation! We want to cook up the same sort of new experiences with your classes at UBC.

  • Why should we do this? By opening up our classroom activities to external elements, we can create new connections and foster an atmosphere of interdisciplinary dialogue. Furthermore, students can work together to better address the complex problems of our time. After all, isn’t that what university is really about?
  • How does it work? That’s the best part. It’s up to you! From lecture swapping and guest speakers to designing integrated assignments and discussion sessions, you can be as involved as you like. We’re here to help you make new connections and establish new ways of doing things. We’ve got some ideas and we know we’ll have some more just by talking to you. More importantly, we have the resources to help your project get off the ground and succeed.
