Perspectives on current issues in teaching and learning. Hosted through the Faculty of Education at the University of British Columbia. Bi-weekly episodes.
 

Halloween is coming up, and we have a frightfully good episode for our loyal listeners. (Yes, despite what Dave says in the episode, we do know that Halloween is on Wednesday. Fiona was right).

Dave speaks to two graduates from the MET program who live in Jamaica. Denise Stoney-James and Keisha Edwards-Hamilton give their insights into what the program was like for them as international students, how the coming together of different cultures in the program enriched their experiences, and what they have taken from the program to further their teaching careers.

In addition, your hosts discuss some Halloween history and traditions and try to avoid waking the creatures of the night that haunt this holiday.

They are marginally successful.

It’s Thanksgiving, and in the spirit of giving, we’re giving you an early episode! Not a full episode, with interview and everything, but a micro-episode (did we just come up with a word?) We just wanted to thank you, our listeners, for all of your support over the last two years. Rather than miss next week’s episode because of the holiday, we decided to give you a little something this week.

Even though there’s no interview, that doesn’t mean there isn’t good stuff this week. We talk about Thanksgiving traditions, V-Con last weekend (spoiler alert: Dave had a blast), as well as some upcoming courses and programs brought to you through Professional Development & Community Engagement.

We wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving! And  from all of us here at Down the Hall, thank you.
