Funding Opportunity

This pandemic has been a huge learning experience for many educators, having to quickly shift from a face-to-face space to an online learning environment. To help with this transition, we’ve developed the BCcampus Professional Learning Grant.

The 2020-21 BCcampus Professional Learning Grant will focus on funding for B.C. post-secondary educators to better access professional development to help gain the knowledge and skills they need to teach online.

The goal of the BCcampus Professional Learning Grant is to support the participation of diverse voices, ideas, and perspectives to our events and be inclusive to all educators and learning professionals in B.C.
