New librarians can benefit from mentorship, shadowing, and/or peer feedback on teaching practices. There is a helpful community of UBC librarians with teaching expertise who are here to provide support. See the TLT Confluence page for more resources on Peer Instruction at UBC.
You can ask specific questions or set up mentorship or feedback opportunities by email through the Teaching Community of Practice listserv (email@example.com). You can also directly contact the co-chairs of the Teaching and Learning Team: you can find contact information for the current co-chairs on the TLT Confluence page.

Created by librarians and archivists and intended for anyone teaching with primary sources, the TPS Collective invites educators to exchange ideas, cultivate relationships, reflect on pedagogy, learn from other practitioners, contribute lessons and resources, and engage with your community.
First convened in response to the transition to online instruction, a diverse working group of UBC staff and faculty has created this resource to share best practices, strategies and resources for digital facilitation.
