Event language: 
This is your year to explore new definitions of digital literacies and teaching. This is your year to collaborate with experts and peers to design new digital literacies learning experiences for your students. This is your year to say, yes, I innovate. One transformational week, plus a year of online support when you need it. A week of exploration, collaboration and innovation.

All participants will attend introductory Expert Insight sessions during the first two days of the Institute. All Insight sessions will be offered twice — once in English and once in French.

  1. Digital Video Design and Production (Diane Watt)
  2. The Maker Movement (Megan Cotnam-Kappel)
  3. Serious Games and Learning (Emmanuel Duplàa)
  4. Learning New Literacies through Inquiry (Michelle Schira Hagerman)

Each participant will then choose a theme on which to focus their Deep Design work on Wednesday and Thursday. Deep Design sessions will involve hands-on technical skill development, guided support from UOttawa Faculty and other Institute participants, and time to create a personal project that integrates new learning.
