September 2021 Vol.2 Issue 1
If, as TS Eliot once wrote, April is the cruellest month, what does that make September after 18 months of a global pandemic? It’s been rough out there! Despite some false starts in a full reopening of society and on-site business as usual, we find ourselves adjusting and then readjusting to the changing conditions of our working and living environments, and on top of that it’s a new school year!
One thing is certain. At the Justice Institute of BC, we continue to provide the best public safety education possible for our students and community partners, whether on-site, online or somewhere in between. Even if we’re not done with COVID-19 just yet, this September represents a time for renewal and hopefulness for the future. Many of us are gearing up for the academic year ahead with new classes, new students and many new faces around the JIBC campuses, even if many of those faces are still half covered with masks.
This issue of the Learning Hub represents a new direction for us at the Centre for Teaching, Learning, and Innovation. With each issue, we are providing more original content about how we do public safety education at JIBC. This means hearing more from staff, faculty and students about what’s going on, what’s new, what’s interesting, and what the rest of us need to know in order to maintain and improve our practices as educators, whether we’re teaching from the front of the classroom or working behind the scenes.
In this way, the Learning Hub aspires to showcase and deliberate on the best ideas and practices that we can find around the JIBC. We also want to know what’s going on outside the JIBC so that we can be informed of ongoing developments and trends in education. In that spirit, we invite our readers to get in touch with us and tell us what’s going on in your world. If you are doing something unique or innovative or something that just works really well for your students, we want to know about it! This is a publication by the community for the community, and so we hope you’ll join us.
