Students from all faculties at UBC’s Okanagan campus will work together in a special collaborative-learning event Saturday that simulates a real-world situation.
More than 200 students are signed up for the first Interdisciplinary Games, where teams composed of members from diverse disciplines will solve a health-related problem that mimics a real-life situation.
Experts—including faculty, physicians, nurses, occupational therapists, kinesiologists, dentists, dental hygienists, and educators—will be on-hand to provide advice and guidance to students. The event culminates with student teams presenting their solutions. Prizes will be awarded to teams that showcase the ability to work collaboratively to provide practical solutions to the proposed problems.
