An Innovation Showcase and Idea Exchange
November 21, 2016
1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Centre for Teaching Support & Innovation
130 St. George Street, Robarts Library, 4th floor
Have you been hearing about “personalized learning” for students and wondering what that buzzword means? Curious about how your colleagues are putting new student-centred strategies into practice by leveraging online resources? At this event we’ll demystify the idea of “personalization” as we explore several approaches that introduce elements of flexible, authentic and active learning. Join us for an opportunity to see a range of examples of innovative new digital curriculum projects – including an online Classical Tibetan course created by the Director of the Centre for Buddhist Studies – recently funded by the provincial government, and find out how the lead instructors are engaging and supporting undergraduate learners. This event will serve as both a showcase and a forum for exchange of ideas on leveraging technology to enhance curriculum design.
