Open Session Limited to 60 Participants (First-Come, First-In).

Studios, Sprints, Hubs, cMOOCs: these are just a few of the evolving approaches to engaging and supporting faculty, using learning technology.

How are we adapting our professional development as the technology ecosystem and the institutional landscape shifts?

This shifting context in teaching and learning at the can best be considered along a continuum of change.

At one end of the UBC continuum, we have a time-bound environment encompassing institutionally driven approaches, including content-based, and tool specific approaches and practices.

At the other end is an unbounded approach that is agile, needs driven, flexible, and open.

This hands- on workshop explores our collective shifting professional development approaches and will engage participants in reflecting on and sharing changing practices to professional development through interactive activities.

* Mapping Activity using a Padlet. (Creation of a group map showing professional development along a continuum.)
