A look ahead

In the coming weeks, we will begin releasing podcast episodes that explore multimodality in various initiatives at the University of British Columbia. Taking you behind the scenes of everything from beekeeping to ballroom dancing, we want to explore the modes of meaning-making especially with those who use different words to convey their experiences. We hope to share the creators’ unique perspectives on their multimodal learning and teaching while also capturing what makes our community unique and dynamic.
