George Kennedy discusses new directions in interdisciplinary teaching (including distance learning) and research
being adopted at The University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada. He discusses initiatives at different
levels: within one Faculty (College) - the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences at UBC; across Faculties at UBC; and between
UBC and its international partner universities. One of the international partnerships is focussed on North America (British
Columbia, Oregon and Mexico) initially for undergraduate education and another is focussed on Southeast Asia for graduate
education and research..
