iPad Workshop POSTPONED

NOTE: Due to low enrollment, the iPad workshop has been postponed. In its place, Rebecca will host an informal round-table knowledge sharing session. This will run from 1:00-2:30. Feel free bring your iPad and drop into LMX 477 to join the discussions.

Have an iPad? Want to learn more efficient ways to use your iPad to support teaching and learning? This workshop is offered in two parts. You can attend one or both.

This workshop will be presented in English. Space is limited, advanced registration is recommended.

This is a Bring Your Own Device event. If you do not have an iPad and wish to attend, consider borrowing one from the Library.

Part 1 – iPadagogy 1-2:30 pm LMX 477
The iPadagogy workshop is a 90-minute hands-on workshop where different features, applications, and workflows will be demonstrated. You will be encouraged to try out different features during the workshop and will be given one or two challenges.

Part 2 – Knowledge sharing event 3:00 – 4:30 LMX 477
One of the things that makes teaching and learning on the iPad unique is that no matter how long you have had the device, chances are you have something to share. Those who have been using the devices for awhile will have figured out interesting and unique workflows, those who just got their iPads will be more familiar with the current capabilities of apps in the app store. Things change so quickly, that no one person can stay current. This is your opportunity to see what your peers are doing, and to share what you are doing.

Part 2 is a collaborative learning knowledge sharing event. You will have an opportunity to work in groups to answer a challenge, and to share a few tips-and-tricks that you have learned.

This workshop is presented by Rebecca Hogue, PhD Candidate, University of Ottawa. Her research focuses on the design of professional development programs to support the use of iPads in higher education teaching.

We need volunteers to help with the logistics for this event. Please indicate your willingness to help on the registration form.

This workshop is run by volunteers and sponsored by the Education Graduate Student Association. To share your appreciation for our efforts, we will be collecting donations for the Caring and Sharing Exchange, specifically for their “Sharing in Student Success” program which provides school supplies to children in need in the Ottawa area. Please consider a donation of $5 or more for your participation in this workshop (pledge forms are here if you wish a tax receipt).
