The Department of Curriculum & Pedagogy is excited to announce it will be hosting The Canadian Association of Curriculum Studies, 7th Biennial Provoking Curriculum Studies Conference, on February 20 and 21, 2015 on the UBC campus.
The 1st Provoking Curriculum Conference took place at UBC in 2003. As the Conference returns to UBC, it looks forward to engaging in further adventures and challenges of learning how to live well and wisely in the world. Acknowledging that curriculum studies are always plural and polyphonic, it invites educators to provoke curriculum studies by attending to the multiple denotations of provoke: to stimulate, arouse, elicit, induce, excite, kindle, generate, instigate, goad, prick, sting, prod, infuriate, madden, ruffle, stir, and inflame.
