The Centre for Sustainable Food Systems Teaching & Learning team works in collaboration with instructors and students throughout UBC to develop open educational resources, including “case studies” that can be adapted to any discipline, by anyone at UBC or elsewhere. Each case study provides an experiential and place-based learning opportunity by exploring and understanding a food system asset at UBC. A food asset is a place where people can grow, prepare, share, buy, receive and learn about food or a resource, facility, service that strengthen the local food system.
Within these case studies, students and instructors can find a general introduction to a food system topic as well as inter-disciplinary pathways to explore and adapt to course learning outcomes and student fields of interest. The case studies are Open Education Resources (OER) under Creative Commons. Instructors, visit the Teaching Guide. Students and instructors, explore the Open Educational Resources tab to learn about benefits of OER.
The Sustainable Food Systems on Campus Case Studies were developed by the Centre For Sustainable Food Systems Teaching and Learning Committee, with the support of the UBC Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund, the Faculty of Land and Food Systems, and UBC Information Technology.
