The Learning Commons website is an evolving collection of student-curated learning resources to support academic success and wellness. Based out of the Chapman Learning Commons in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, the Learning Commons website is a collaboration between UBC Library, the Centre for Teaching, Learning & Technology and the Centre for Student Involvement & Careers. Through an emphasis on peer-led, student-driven initiatives and shared-decision making, we strive to enrich academic support and enhance the experience of all UBC students, with an emphasis on the first-year undergraduate experience.
The website provides companion resources to our in-person services in the Chapman Learning Commons, where we provide access to advanced technologies, collaborative work areas, workshop space and learning support. We emphasize a learner- and student-centered approach to services.
Our friendly team of Chapman Learning Commons Assistants work on the level 3 Help Desk in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and assist library-users with the technology in the space, loan out a wide range of equipment and help students connect with key learning resources and services on campus.
