Digital Fluency

In this workshop, we’ll develop ways to bring digital fluency into our courses and curricula, and ways to advocate for digital fluency outcomes to be more fully integrated.

Tools and Tool Hacking

A rapid-fire “tool parade” introducing a flurry of tools with time to experiment more closely with one genre of tool: data and text analysis, digital media production, or tools for dynamic online learning.

Interdisciplinary Pedagogy in STEM

We will focus on the development and delivery of student-centred learning experiences, experimenting with an interdisciplinary, global approach to scientific problems.

Privacy—a Cryptoparty

This session will balance human concerns and technical steps we can take in how we live and work online—the privacy and security tradeoffs that are part of our online lives.

Applied Imagination

This one-day intensive will explore both how we imagine education and how we might create more opportunities to be imaginative in our own practice.

Open and Critical Pedagogy in K12

This workshop will consider how to create safe digital learning spaces in K12 classrooms where formal and informal learning in networked learning spaces converge.

4-Day Courses

Tuesday, July 31 - Friday, August 3

Writing about Teaching

Accounting for ourselves as writers is essential to the integrity of our pedagogy. We will work to put teaching into words, using writing to narrate our practice.

Digital Storytelling

Together, we will consider storytelling broadly in terms of “meaning making,” and we will explore conventional and non-conventional digital tools for creating narratives.

Access, Privacy, and Practice

In the age of persistent surveillance, profiling, and predictive analytics, we will address pedagogical practices for building an ethical approach to digital practices.

Data, Code, Action

This course focuses on the basics of data science and coding, as they apply to education, educational data, and data literacy, and combating disinformation online.

Design for Change

This course will look at design strategies we can use to bring positive change to educational institutions and communities through digital tools, spaces, and practices.

Digital Literacies

This course centers on the development of participatory, networked literacies that enable collaboration and critical sense-making in a culture of information abundance.

Introduction to Critical Digital Pedagogy

With a specific focus on teaching philosophies and practices for using digital tools in courses, we will explore the impact of the digital on traditional and critical pedagogies.
