Vancouver, B.C. – 30 October 2023 – Langara College, renowned for offering a diverse range of higher education programs to more than 23,000 students, is strengthening its collaboration with PebblePad, the Learning Journey Platform.
This expansion builds upon the success of an initial pilot program which saw Langara’s nursing students harness the PebblePad platform to record and reflect upon learning milestones during their placements. During this pilot, the team at Langara was particularly impressed with PebblePad’s ability to help students track their progress over time, fostering a culture of continuous improvement.
This expansion will now see PebblePad used across various disciplines, including international cooperation initiatives. For example, Langara College is already using PebblePad to facilitate collaboration between students from different countries, eliminating geographic barriers, as well as integrating PebblePad into an international workplace course.
Susan Bonham, EdTech Advisor at Langara College, shared her excitement about the expanded partnership. “We’re thrilled to build upon our partnership with PebblePad, which has already proven to be a transformative tool for us. It allows us to provide our students a ‘feed-forward’ approach enabling them to retain and build upon their learning assets throughout their academic journey, ensuring that valuable feedback and self-reflection is not lost when courses conclude.”
Gail Ring, Ph.D., Director of North American Partnerships at PebblePad, says, “Langara College’s proactive approach to integrating technology into education showcases their unwavering commitment to enhancing the learning experience. We are thrilled to continue supporting Langara College as they embrace innovative, sustainable and student-centred educational practices. This partnership reflects a shared vision for the future of education, where technology empowers both educators and learners.”
