What is the EdTech Workshop?

The University of Toronto is at the forefront of new technologies designed to enhance students’ learning inside and outside the lecture hall. Each year, the EdTech Workshop picks a theme and plans a program that showcases best practices for innovating teaching and learning, presented by some of the University’s leaders in educational technology.

(Pedagogy + Practice) x Purpose = EDTECH2017

The EdTech Workshop 2017 will have three sub-themes: Pedagogy, Practice, and Purpose, which together, form the main theme of the workshop. The day will begin with digestible content chunks:
  1. Pedagogy: Which tools work and why?
  2. Practice: How do you implement EdTech effectively?
  3. Purpose: When should you implement and why?

It will continue by looking at the big picture of learning: how to evaluate whether EdTech is changing learning, how to innovate effectively and strategically, and how to transform learning with a purpose. The Workshop will feature sessions presented by both Instructors and staff on best practices as well as case studies of implementations.  Sessions will be honest reflections on what worked, what didn’t, and what their plans on for future improvements and changes.

We hope you’ll join us for a one day workshop as we reflect on how to define learning strategies and outcomes with the goal of maximizing how and when to use EdTech learning tools.
