Architecture  

Sustainability by Design;  

The Design of the North American Sustainable City and its implications for the World  

This class will introduce the basic principles of sustainable urban design with tours of internationally significant local examples. Relevance of these examples to global development is isolated and discussed. A typical day includes a lecture focusing on one principle of sustainable city design, followed by a tour of a place in the region where this principle is obvious. Students will be exposed to significant suburban, urban, and downtown developments. Course material is framed and delivered in the form of seven simple and related principles of sustainable urbanism.  

Perspectives on the Development of the City of Vancouver  

This class will cover the development of the City of Vancouver from the eyes of those who were a part of it. There will be tours and special presentations from those who played a role in specific development projects. Students will gain an insight into both the practical and theoretical considerations that have led to the city as we know it. The course will be taught by Sam Sullivan who served for 15 years as both City Councillor and Mayor and currently serves in the BC Legislature as the representative for Downtown Vancouver.

Sustainability  

This course critically examines environmental resource issues from an interdisciplinary perspective, drawing from both the social and natural sciences to build more robust understandings of human – environment interactions. Students explore key environmental concepts such as sustainability; natural resources; complexity; systems thinking; ecosystem dynamics; risk and uncertainty; regulation and governance; and human environmental impact. Concepts of sustainable environmental management are applied to the examination of four hotly debated global resources: water, energy, forestry, and fisheries. 

Business  

Package A International Business and Marketing

Introduction to Marketing  

Basic considerations affecting the domestic and international marketing of goods and services. This course is designed to provide a broad introduction to the field of marketing. Marketing is far more than just selling or advertising within a business setting; it is a major part of everyday life. This course will illustrate the importance of marketing and will help you develop fundamental marketing knowledge and skills applicable to all specializations within business.  

Organizational Behaviour and Management  

Behaviour in organizations as it affects people as individuals, their relationships with others, their performance in groups and their effectiveness at work. The primary objective of this course is to teach you about the effects of organizational structures and interpersonal processes on the behaviour of individuals in organizations and the wider implications for the effectiveness and success of organizations. 

Dentistry  

Oral Cancer: Why haven't the clinical outcomes improved?  

Cancer of the oral tissues is the 6th most common type in the world. In some developing countries oral cancer is much more common due to oral habits and exposure to chemicals that can cause cancer. The five year survival rates for oral cancer remain low with nearly half of all the affected individuals dying from the disease. Early diagnosis of oral cancer is the most effective approach to decrease the mortality and morbidity. Pre-malignant lesions exist that have a much higher chance of becoming oral cancer and the recognition and management of these lesions can prevent cancer development. Oral cancer occurs in an anatomic location that is amenable to early diagnosis. Many techniques have been developed to aid in the recognition and diagnosis of both pre-malignant and malignant oral lesions. In this course the development of oral cancer, the clinical signs of the condition, the clinical and laboratory procedures fordiagnosis and the long term consequences of an oral cancer diagnosis will be covered.  

Dental Caries: the most common infectious disease in humans  

Dental caries affects more than 90% of all humans. The disease requires a combination of bacteria, a sugar and a susceptible mineralized tooth surface. The bacteria metabolize the sugar and a by-product is acid. The acid removes mineral from the surface of the tooth. Extensive destruction of the tooth mineral leads to the pathology, dental decay. Dental decay is a progressive process and if it is allowed to continue it can progress into the dental pulp and then into the supporting bones. If a bacterial abscess forms in the bone supporting the tooth it is often necessary to remove the tooth. Dental caries is the leading cause of tooth loss in the world. The loss of teeth affects the ability to eat, alters nutrition and has a dramatic impact on the quality of life. This course will take a comprehensive look at dental caries to understand how this disease impacts human populations.  

 

Education

Students will learn about creating dynamic indoor and outdoor learning spaces for young children, designing appropriate daily schedules, and implementing teaching strategies for integrating different areas of learning, such as literacy, math, science, and art through inquiry and project-based learning.  

 

Forestry  

The Ecology, Economics, and Politics of Carbon  

Humans use carbon-based molecules in almost all aspects of daily life - food, shelter, clothing, and power generation are but a few examples. Unfortunately, deforestation, land degradation, and fossil fuel emissions are responsible for the build-up of carbon in the atmosphere. This is causing the atmosphere to heat up which in turn is changing the global climate. To understand why this is a problem and what we can do about it, you will be provided with an introduction to the ecology of carbon (where it is, and how it cycles through the living and non-living world). We will then discuss the challenges of limiting carbon emissions by considering the interaction between economics and politics.  

Sustainable ForestManagement  

This course represents an attempt to integrate knowledge and processes relating to forest management across a wide array of disciplines, but it centrally concerned with bringing the underlying ecological and management science together. It involves a mix of lectures, group discussions and field visits to increase the understanding of students about problems involved with managing forest ecosystems for a variety of societal goals and objectives. The course is heavily geared towards ecological, economic and policy context of British Columbia; however, international implications and issues of forest management are also covered.
