Welcome to UBC Digital Media Community of Practice

This website is for all UBC faculty and staff members who are somehow affiliated with digital media production and are interested in sharing their knowledge and learning from others. The UBC Community of Practice group meets once every two months, with opportunities of joining a working group to pursue new and innovative initiatives.


Who are we?

The UBC Digital Media Community of Practice offers a space for UBC staff who are involved in production of digital media to come together and share ideas and resources. From new demonstrations of technologies to guest speakers, the idea of a Community of Practice is for individuals to share their work, ideas and observations to others in the community. We have had staff from departments present about their newest innovations in 360 video and VR as well as simple yet interesting looks on how different forms of media impact the way we think. Since there are individuals of different backgrounds, many specialists in different areas can also share their best practices, and enlighten other departments and staff around campus, empowering them to do more with the resources that we have one campus. We currently have a community of over 50 UBC staff from over 15 different departments and units on campus.


What are working groups?

Working groups are where members of the community of practice work in smaller groups on initiatives or problems that are brought up by the UBC community or through the group. If you have an idea for a new Working Group, please do not hesitate to contact us at ubc.studios@ubc.ca, and we will set up a space for you on our site, and contact/invite individuals that may be interested to join your team.

How do I join?

The UBC Community of Practice is always looking for more members to join. If you are a UBC staff/faculty member and are interested, get in touch. (Please note that mailing lists are updated once per month before the next meeting.)
