A Decade of Innovation in Science Education
Professor Gass has helped to change the way thousands of UBC students learn. A nationally recognized 3M Teaching Fellow, he was instrumental in establishing three integrated and interactive UBC programs: Science One and the Coordinated and Integrated Sciences programs. These programs bring different disciplines together, exposing students to a broader understanding of various subjects. "For example, with assistance from a chemist, a physicist and a mathematician, a biologist can teach students about photosynthesis at a much deeper level," explains Gass. "When students embrace this kind of learning, it can be life changing."
