The purpose of the BCcampus Learning Access Program for Educators (LAP-E) is to help instructors and teaching faculty from B.C. public post-secondary institutions attend BCcampus professional development opportunities. The Learning Access Program for Educators supports applicants to allow them to participate and share their ideas as well as learn from others. BCcampus aims to provide a diverse set of voices to its events and will balance regional participation with budget limitations.
The Learning Access Program for Educators assists with registration fees as well as travel, per diem, and accommodation costs.
