About UBC Mix

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

Our Mix Team can help you to find Mix partners and design Mix activities. You can also meet up with potential partners at our Mixer networking luncheons each term. Check out our website for more information, or keep exploring our wiki! We've got information on how to get involved, a Mix examples archive, and a bunch of resources to support you as you Mix things up in your teaching and learning.
