Join the first AAPS Peer-Learning Roundtable


About the Program

We are pleased to present the inaugural AAPS Peer-Based Learning Roundtable. Our goal is to give AAPS members the opportunity to share their institutional knowledge and experience on a specific discussion topic. Our hope is that through peer-based learning, members can collaborate to solve workplace challenges and create new opportunities within the UBC community.

For our first event we will focus on “Offering Effective Feedback within the UBC culture”. While we will not discuss formal performance reviews, we will be identifying some of the barriers members have offering feedback and discussing tools and ideas that may assist members in future feedback conversations.

Our facilitator, Jessica Earle-Meadows will be providing guidance and structure to our discussion. She will help to ensure that different members of the group have the opportunity to participate and that the conversation moves towards suggestions and solutions.

This session will offer:

An opportunity to review and make meaning of why offering effective feedback is challenging in a UBC context

An opportunity to hear from other UBC colleagues from a range of positions on the topic of delivering effective feedback

You will leave with:

Participant-generated practices for delivering effective practices at UBC


For our inaugural event we chose to leave the sessions open to any member. Our hope this that you will bring challenges, solutions, and best practices to the discussion. We also hope you will bring openness, patience, and flexibility. Please note this is a highly participatory session and we expect everyone to be active participants.
